Comments: Married people write to College of Bishops

As an American (of a certain age), I well remember the day when 4 black students sat down at a lunch counter in North Carolina and changed the world forever. So I have only unbridled appreciation and prayers for the clergy and their companions who signed the letter and for +Nicholas. The times they are a changing and we shall not be moved. Alleluia.

"The times, they are a-changing". Deo gratias!

In 2005, Bishop David Jenkins blessed a civil partnership between two gay men despite a church ban on such blessings. May this well-loved and prophetic man rest in peace and be remembered as someone who lived at a time when CofE bishops were seen to be relevant.

Our thanks too.

A heart-felt initiative from the signatories.

So many happy couples, called and blessed of God.

pax amorque,

Laurie & Michael

Way to go! Now if the supporting bishops would just "come out" and break ranks...
