Comments: Easter messages from bishops - a selection

For me the pick of the crop has to be the Easter Message from the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham - a most professional presentation.

Just an observation. Videos take time to watch, whereas a written contribution can be skimmed over in seconds avoiding the platitudes and you can then decide whether to spend time reading it. How many others will also avoid the videos but choose the written word instead?
PS the link to Blackburn etc doesn't work.

There appears to be a problem with the Blackburn diocesan website this Easter Sunday morning. But the Blackburn messages are also on the cathedral website, which is working, so I have linked to that instead.

You have completely ignored the best sermon preached by an Anglican Primate this Easter. If only the present cohort of the English House of Bishops were capable of this level of engagement - both with scripture and society. Link to Word document from this page

I completely agree with Richard Ashby. I click away every video unless someone can give me a good reason why I should watch it. There simply isn't time.

Simon R - Thank you for drawing attention to the Bishops of Dublin's sermon. But this is a list of messages published by bishops before Easter Day which is why it doesn't include any sermons. There will be a small selection of these in tomorrow's Opinion article.
