Sunday radio interview and discussion

The BBC’s radio programme Sunday has several items of Anglican interest today. (Real Audio required.) Full programme details including interesting items on Judaism and Islam as well here.

Richard Harries
A big figure on the national religious landscape is stepping down in 2006 - like the Chief Rabbi, Richard Harries, the Bishop of Oxford, has a voice that is listened to outside his immediate constituency. He has been doing the job for 19 years - they were turbulent years for Anglicanism, and he was often to be found hacking away at the coal face of controversy. He talks about the highlights of his career.

Some good predictions for 2006! I'll go for the Pope allowing RC priests to take a wife - quite a few people who would be very happy (and married) !
