Well, at least, the Welsh Archbishop is determined not to fudge the issues on homosexuality. This should encourage the Chyurch of England Bishops to do the same.

Regarding Lay Ministry; this is vital for all our Churches – especially in the light of fewer priests to man the barricades.

I should amend my last sentence in my comment above: to read “Regarding Lay Ministry; this is vital for all our Churches – especially in the light of fewer priests to wo/man the barricades.

Inclusive language, Father. As we don’t man offices any more, but rather staff them, I suggest we might garrison the barricades.

Re William d. Barton “Inclusive language, Father. As we don’t man offices any more, but rather staff them, I suggest we might garrison the barricades.”
