Bishop Pete Broadbent has written about what he means by Open Evangelicalism.

Giles Fraser writes for the Church Times that Holiness is steeped in the messy reality of life.

The Archbishop of Canterbury preached this sermon earlier this week: Archbishop’s sermon at Westminster Abbey - 400th anniversary of the King James Bible.

Mark Vernon writes for The Guardian that To be truly compassionate you need to be kind to yourself.

In the summer of 2011, a survey was conducted by 3D Coaching inviting clergy of all denominations to give feedback on their experience of being interviewed for a role as a minister during the last 3 years. The results are available for download: How to Make Great Appointments Survey Results. In an article now available to non-subscribers the Church Times reports this as Parish profiles do not match up to the job, say clerics.

I believe that Giles Fraser hits the nail on the head when he speaks of the poverty and lack of help for Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land. This is an area of religious difference that has descended into pure political convenience on the part of the State of Israel. While Christians have a definite filial relationship with the Jews - as a people who provided us with the Messianic Saviour,how does the State's present oppression of their Christian neighbours reflect 'Mishpat' - that Hebrew concept of 'Peace and Mercy'?

While one can understand the need for a strong Israeli State - in the situation of a surrounding and militant Arab culture - oppression of a minority should never be part of that political set-up.
"O pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!"
