Still travelling the diocese with the policy … I was reminded last night of my old friend Tom Keightley – a great man for the pithy comment expressed in the patois of Upperlands, Co Derry. ‘All superstructure and no infrastructure,’ said Tom. He meant, I assume, that we could have lots of bright ideas but nobody to put them into practice. And I learnt a bit of that last night. In shaping the policy, we haven’t said enough about how good practice might be shared from one congregation to another. We’ve said a lot about organisation and not enough about prayer. Interesting this stuff of asking people what they think ….
Asking people what they think can be very dangerous. . . as the Irish government have discovered this morning.
