Very moved by Giles Fraser's piece - so familiar. And it is endless harder, it seems. But then courage comes to seem one of the chief of the virtues, the one which enables the others. I hope he knows that his sacrifice has enabled others of us to hold our heads high with our friends.

I, too, found Giles Fraser's offering quite affecting. In our city of Christchurch, New Zealand, in the aftermath of Quakes and After-shocks, the Cathedral has been de-consecrated.

This has led to emotional conflict in the local community - between those who feel the original plan of the Cathedral should be replicated in a new or heavily-renovated copy of the original; and those who (like me) feel that, in view of the destruction that has occurred, a newer, more contemporary building should be planned for the future.

I feel, like Fr. Giles, that there is a need to move on from our loss - looking for a radically different building - to reflect a resurrection
paradigm, more fitting than a mere memorial of what has been.

Perhaps this ought to be a possibility for the future of our Anglican Communion - based on a radical openness to renewal and enlightenment in our dynamic and evolving society and world.
