They’ve nicked my Dean - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

It was announced early this morning that the Dean of Bradford, Dr David Ison, is to be the next Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Great for London, but a real loss for Bradford and the glorious north of England.

David is brilliant and has been a superb colleague in the year since I…

Three disclaimers and a plug - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Just for the record, I note the following:

1. On BBC Radio 4′s excellent ‘The Report’ programme, broadcast last night, I was introduced as having been a vicar in Southwark before moving to Bradford. Not true. I told…

The Conversion of St Paul’s - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

It looks like the conversion of St Paul’s wasn’t exactly a Damascus Road experience after all.

The delayed publication of the latest report by the St Paul’s Institute shows that, even if the City was unaware of it and the Occupy protesters ended up on the cathedral steps more by accident…

Morality and the market - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

I have just taken part in a rather frustrating remote discussion on BBC Radio 4′s Sunday programme. Frustrating only because (I think) Ed Stourton was in Manchester, Eric Lonergan was in London, Professor John Milbank was in…

Playing the game - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

During the last couple of weeks the media focus in London has been on the handling by St Paul’s Cathedral in particular and the Church of England in general of the Occupy camp. Three questions were asked repeatedly by journalists, for whom this story must have presented itself with bells and…

Business as (un)usual - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

So, yesterday St Paul’s Cathedral Chapter dropped its legal action against the camp protesters – not all of whom are anti-capitalist per se, despite the media shorthand categorisation – and the Corporation of London ‘paused’ their action to evict. This has allowed a fresh approach to the whole…

PRetty unpretty - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

An explanation is not an excuse.

Let me repeat that: an explanation is not an excuse. So, what I am about to write is an explanation of why bishops have not been willing to comment in public on the events at St Paul’s Cathedral in the last couple of weeks. The structure of the Church of…

Giles Frazzled - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

When every day is full of back-to-back meetings and events it is not easy either to keep up with what’s going on in the world or to write blog posts. Add to that a chest infection, the almost total loss of my voice and the fed up feeling that goes with it and blog silence becomes understandable.…

Launching the Good Society Conversation

Listening to the periphery at the heart of WestminsterThere was something intensely symbolic and powerful about yesterday’s launch of the Good Society Conversation by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and Church Action on Poverty:  Eighty people packed into the Cardinal Hume Centre’s children’s centre, a stone’s throw from Westminster’s power places – Parliament, Whitehall, Abbey and Cathedral - yet somehow a million miles away from the formalities of what now passes for conventional…See More
