Comments: G20 and the churches

Archbishop Shaves off his Beard: Prophetic Act for G20 Summit.

If our faith was first born in the middle of the global deserts, as world empire faded; if we next moved on to the green oases of innumerable courts where court life (and its intrigues) occupied us; then now surely we are moving on, to wander among all the planetary seasides as our oil reserves run resolutely dry, contemplating the powers and seasons of that most fluid ocean - several yet one, globally.

The surging waters of change make waves all around us, not least now financially in a global economy more immediately interconnected; yet also in every other single domain of our daily lives.

Swimming, boating, surfing, wading, life saving - these are the large images of our religious or spiritual life. Surrounded, fluid, we are all still pilgrims.

As you posted that after 12 noon, does it still count as an April Fool?
