"Thank you very much for this, Ruth. It is most timely as I am just completing a paper for the Churches Group for Local Unity about informal ways in which different churches are working together. I've found much excellent work but in terms of…"
"I agree that Street Pastors is great but Bill Snelson, the former General Secretary of CTE, said it's not about 'doing ecumenical things' but about 'doing things ecumenically'. I say that there are two parts to the…"
"This sounds great, Paul, but real 'Churches Together' is when the churches themselves get together and agree to act together instead of separately. Otherwise, even though it calls itself 'Churches Together' it is really only a…"
"It's good to be open minded, Philip, but sometimes you really have to rack your brains. But you should never ever rack your brains with an open mind. If you do, all the little bits fall out the bottom and it's very messy..."
"I was there, Peter, and I thought it was a grand do. I'm glad I kept my coat on because it felt like a gathering of God's frozen people! I thought ABC Rowan's sermon was excellent and the service was very well put…"
"Linda, it's not true that you 'emailed CT once or twice recently asking this question, but no reply has arrived...so far!' I replied at some length on January 16th; it's just that you didn't like what I said! In…"

I disagree with his final point. I don't see how can help wondering whether or not there is a purpose to the existence of the universe. The ultimate…"
"I get worried by the tabloid press. They seem to be a labour-saving device: if you're too tired to work out what you really think about the big issues, never mind; just buy a newspaper that will do the thinking for you. I don't…"
"I'm not sure about this. I'm not saying that this writer is paranoid, and I know that even the paranoid have enemies, but I do think that some who suffer from paranoia would take this to confirm that 'they' are out to get…"
"Thank you, Gwen. It was good to meet you and see Donald after many years. I saw Stephen Bywater recently at our District Synod and he also has fond memories of you both. I knew Stephen from our time in North Devon."
"It's not just the Guildford Diocese and it is a national problem but I don't think the Church of England realises that! It was the EU Employment Law which set this particular ball rolling. It means that an employer cannot now…"
"I'm sure that when Common Tenure was agreed nobody thought about how it would affect LEPs. It is healthy for a Single Congregation LEP to have ministerial leadership from each of its partner Churches. Many LEPs between the Free…"
