Comment on More from Ohio – about the Anglican Communion #pisky #Anglican by Wyn Beynon http://www.bishopdavid.net/2016/11/more-from-ohio-about-the-anglican-communion-pisky-anglican/#comment-342508 Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:11:29 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/2016/11/more-from-ohio-about-the-anglican-communion-pisky-anglican/#comment-342508 Thank you Bishop David for this positive and encouraging blog. As a Welsh Anglican I like to remind my English brothers and sisters that the CofE is not the mother Church of the communion – that place falls to the Scottish Episcopal Church who birthed the communion as they consecrated Bishop Seabury. Great to see you with the Bishop Michael.

Comment on Coming to terms with Trump?  #pisky #anglican by Jimmy McPhee http://www.bishopdavid.net/2016/11/coming-to-terms-with-trump-pisky-anglican/#comment-342500 Mon, 14 Nov 2016 18:07:21 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/2016/11/coming-to-terms-with-trump-pisky-anglican/#comment-342500 The Room

I walked through the door
into an oval room
forty feet long
forty feet wide
completely square
except for one octagonal side

In the far corner was a chair
beautifully designed
skillfully made
an obvious chippendale
on the wall hung a sign
“This chair is not for sale”

Upon the chair sat a boy
laughing as he read “Plato’s Republic”
he lifted his eyes
with an embarrassed look
I smiled assent
knowing it was a funny book

Two strangers enter the room
we greeted each other
like long lost friends
and as the day wore on
much in the past became outmoded
we talked we sang
and we planned for the future
as the missiles exploded.

This came to me about 35 years ago
I wrote it down and you are welcome to it.

We look forward especially to hearing about the outcome of the VTS conversations.

Sadly I hear they are pulling out of “City of Derry” next year.

This led to an indignant editorial in the Impartial Reporter. How times have changed!
