Thank you for making our (and especially my) Holy Week so special. It meant such a lot to share it with somebody who actually was emotionally& spiritually involved with the passion story and its triumphant outcome and who CARED.

Comment on Eco-Bishops Meeting in South Africa by Eleanor Charman http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/02/eco-bishops-meeting-in-south-africa/#comment-317225 Fri, 20 Feb 2015 08:35:38 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5251#comment-317225 Good to see some activity in this arena. I’d be interested to hear more on this, and just how much of this is percolating into our churches. I do hope that each participant is also carbon offsetting their travel to and from South Africa?

To be a bit more serious – it’s noticeable that in the SEC people coming to meetings in Edinburgh almost all come by public transport. And I think that rural broadband speed is actually a ‘green’ issue because of the potential for moving meetings on line

Comment on Revisiting South Africa by Peter Kerr http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/02/revisiting-south-africa/#comment-317055 Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:13:57 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5249#comment-317055 Hi David, Interested to read about your peregrinations, most recently in South Africa to talk about climate change. Why don’t all you primates issue a decree that all churches should have solar panels installed or be closed. Just think, all those south facing roofs! Powerful symbolic act in support of reducing carbon emissions while filling up the church coffers at the same time. Veritable win-win.
Regards to Nick Holtam (my Lord of Salisbury)
P.S. Don’t pass down to Diocesan Advisory boards for discussion. Just do on threat of excommunication!

I look forward to reading about the rest of your trip!

Comment on Shorn by Karen Gaskell http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/02/shorn/#comment-315595 Mon, 16 Feb 2015 17:00:38 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5243#comment-315595 We should not underestimate the importance of creating space (and time) – to listen to God, to one another and those innermost stirrings in our heart. Put all 3 together and mix in the Holy Spirit and hopefully we will find God’s pathway, particularly at this time as we begin the Lenten journey.

Comment on Holocaust by Dr John Dinnen http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/01/holocaust/#comment-297434 Tue, 27 Jan 2015 19:00:10 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5234#comment-297434 A moving posting, bringing it nearer home by including Ireland. My wife and I brought our children to see Belsen not long after the Iron Curtain came down.
I hope the Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace soon, as well as the peoples of Syria, Iraq and Nigeria etc.

Comment on Paperless. #pisky by peter Rolf-Austin http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/01/paperless-pisky/#comment-292025 Thu, 22 Jan 2015 17:45:03 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5225#comment-292025 Dropbox is very good and I use it all the time, but is not entirely secure for very sensitive information. Its probably ok for most church stuff. If you are information transiting between PC and Ipad, then I also wholly recommend Google Drive which allows for photos and documents. The allocation of Cloud space is especially generous. Apple’s own cloud space ( ICloud and Pages) is also quite good and has one especially useful feature: you can use SIRI to dictate all your correspondence. It has probably the best accuracy of “speak technology” at present and is much better than Google’s resident speak-app. Again I use this on a daily basis and saves a lot of time.

Comment on Paperless. #pisky by david http://www.bishopdavid.net/2015/01/paperless-pisky/#comment-289158 Mon, 19 Jan 2015 22:27:31 +0000 http://www.bishopdavid.net/?p=5225#comment-289158 Ellie – the wifi problem seems to be solved provided that you remember to open the document after you have uploaded. Well yes – security is always an issue. I wouldn’t use it for material which wasn’t already in reasonably wide circulation or for anything particularly sensitive. But that applies to my e mail as well .. It’s all relative really. After all it avoids the challenge of safe disposal of material after you have finished with it – and the risk of it being around in an office which is visited by many – and ..

The second concern I have is over security. It depends on what information you wish to store in dropbox. If it was sensitive information for instance, I would not use dropbox. Just a thought.
