The Embalse de Riano in northern Spain. The picture was taken by .... me!

Thursday, November 7


Mrs brought home a copy of the church of england newspaper.

I used to read our a lot, but stored because it always left me feeling anxious. 

But I suppose that if we are both to be ordained we need to be up on our church politics.

This edition had a big article on GAFCON.  Now as an evangelical I should gel really comfortable with them.  But I find them deeply disturbing.  Granted, I don't want the church to be run by extreme liberals who see no conflict in claiming to be both muslim and christian.  But gafcon s attempt to proclaim unity while establishing a schematic faction seems to be self defeating.  I don't support them in their opposition to gay marriage.  And generally I just don't like them.

So where will I sit in future if the church divides along these lines?  They are my more natural bed fellows, but I couldn't really start with them.  On the other hand Iwouldn't feel happy on the other side.

I'll just have to set up my own church !
