I have a lot of time for the Friends and indeed David Boulton, former editor of Sea of Faith Magazine and who gave that publication a cool clarity. The organiser of my talk yesterday is a Quaker, and she actually was one who embodied what I was saying, having tried the Metropolitan Community Church as well, and others - thus a shopping around a pattern of identifiable groups of which the Quakers are one.

I'd say to Giles Fraser that Nigeria, Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya have produced so many bishops for the USA that, far from being virtual and remote, they are likely to be in the congregation more regularly than many a churchgoer. Big Bishop is therefore watching them.
