Comments: Church Commissioners' full report for 2010 issued

Despite the need for financial prudence, it seems there is still money to provide for further PEVs. Will the cost of these come out of the budget of General Synod, or out of the ABCs discretionary fund, I wonder? If from General Synod, I guess the next meeting of that body could withhold funds?

A challenge to the literalists, all this, indeed:

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go sell all that thou hast, and give to the poor.

I understand that the Church Commissioners money is not straightforwardly church money, but is subject to strict trusts under English law. It doesn't "belong" to "the Church" as such.

Jesus said more about money than sex. This item has not received the attention it deserves.
