I’m grateful for the comments on yesterday’s post. This whole place is full of putative oppositional pairings at present – justice and righteousness being just another of the more common. I think Archbishop Rowan took a calculated risk in setting out his picture of the two groups as he did. There seems to be some kind of tentative dialogue stirring and that is to be welcomed. If I have any answer to Kimberly’s question as to where the centre might be, I think it is probably among those who can identify with both sides of this issue and who are unable to reach a clear and final view on it.
Gene Robinson addressed a meeting here this evening. I felt I needed to go and hear him and so I did.
It’s been unbelievably and unrelentingly hot here for the past two weeks and a fair measure of weariness is setting in. At Evening Worship today, what should have been a three minute address in a stifling big top stretched to 15. I resisted the temptation to leave – but only just. We’ve been here now for 15 days. Four more to go. Satis superque again.
