1914: Remembering World War One - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Religious illiteracy (again) - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Sometimes I (and others) feel like we are banging a drum that just irritates people who have an ideological reason for not wanting to listen to any critique of religious illiteracy.…

Questions, questions and more questions - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

I have not had time to post on all the myriad of things going on in the world. I am writing this on the train back from London before heading off to lecture and preach at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena tomorrow (after a 3.30am wake up).

But, these are the questions I would ask…

Leading questions - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Safe and sound - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Being away has made me feel a little detached from the sound and fury of home. But, as I used to work for them, I have followed the GCHQ/NSA business quite closely. It…

Cutting costs - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

It does, indeed.

I haven't…

Rolling back the years - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

The trouble is, of course, that we can't roll back the years. We can't de-invent the nuclear bomb or some of the technological 'advances' that now create – according to the Law of Unintended Consequences – complex ethical dilemmas for us. We now live in the “we can, therefore we must” rather than…

Making connections - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Last night I was the president and preacher at the ordination of Nick Dill as the Bishop of Bermuda. The Cathedral in Hamilton was packed and it was – for us feeble Brits, at least – hot and sweaty. For me it was a privilege to represent the Archbishop of Canterbury here.…

Religious broadcasting (again) - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

I published a piece in yesterday's Guardian Media Blog on religious broadcasting. The comments that follow on the Guardian site are predictable, if not very rational. Here's the…

Horse play - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Amazing.

Did it really say that? - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

I was asked by a young child recently what I would do if I wasn't a bishop. I think I waffled unconvincingly. this question was as unexpected as another one I was asked by a five year old in a primary school: “Have you got a dog?” This followed, “What's that big cross for?” Weird.

One week on… - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

One week on from the General Synod's vote on women bishops and the story has fallen off the radar of most of the media. The sound and fury has moved on – for the time being, at least – to the next batch of 'stories'.…

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
