Simon - I guess many are called, few are invited, a few are uninvited, and many are re-called. +Jack doesn't necessarily have to exhibit hospitality if he's not in his own house. Yikes!

+ Iker....? Imagine inviting "only the sympathetic"
Did Jesus extend his arms on the cross at Golgotha for only the sympathetic ? How pathetic ! It makes one wonder if the Gagcon devotees really do know what the Gospel means ??

I've no problem with being not invited, or uninvited or disinvited (whatever). I just logged it as a lowpoint because I'd thought, briefly, that the ICB were going to use Lambeth as an opportunity to dialogue across the breadth. Then it became clear that it was more likely to be about stiffening the resolve of those natural conservatives who might have gained a more positive attitude to the Communion by spending time praying and studying scripture with us all.

One of the saddnesses on both sides is that the ringleaders are far more concerned to firm up the faithful than to build bridges across the gaps.

Yes, well, how embarrassing for the Archbishop of Canterbury to "firm up the faithful than to build bridges cross the gaps."....Bishop V.Gene Robinson comes quickly to mind in the "excluded" from building bridges department...the department of bridge building that could welcome MILLIONS of LGBT Christian human beings.

One of the blessings of the last few years is the ability to witness the conduct of the ring leaders. There are probably some did not come to Lambeth because of further collateral damage as they continue to be exposed as scheming political lobbyists and hate mongerers.

Isaiah 29:15 "Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, “Who sees us? Who will know?”"

Malachi is a good read for those who want to be reminded how God perceives priests who break the covenant of peace and withhold mercy or justice.
