Thinking Anglicans

PB interviewed on BBC and NPR

There is a short interview with the ECUSA Presiding Bishop, conducted by Jane Little, at the start of today’s Sunday radio programme. Listen here ( about 4 minutes, Real Audio, better URL later in the week).

And another radio report from National Public Radio here (5.5 minutes long) includes comments from the PB and also from Bishop Robert Duncan.

Update Monday
The NPR broadcast, more specifically Bishop Duncan’s comment, provoked a reaction from Anglicans Online which you can read here.

I note a considerable, remarkable softening… Read more »

Yes, I heard this radio programme, and it’s good to hear the interview again. She is so clear–and yet has a twinkle in her voice ! I loved : ” I am prepared to work with anyone who is willing to work.! And something to the effect that !the 38 Churches of the Anglican Communion aren’t going to agree on anything any time soon….” A reminder of time scale and vitally of process. That is the process, discussion and consultation among the 38 Churches (not their Primates and what not alone). The wonderful diversity of squid — and of the… Read more »
