Kimberly of course wants too much information. But since she asks … the obvious answer to this single room stuff is a discreet rearrangement of the furniture. So we now have a sitting/IT room and a bedroom. Anglican Connubial Bliss is safe for now.
The news hounds who are sniffing around here won’t find much to excite. I’ve been here today for pre-Conference training as a Bible Study Group leader. It’s great news that each group will work in three languages with interpreters. It gives the group leader time to think.
Initial impressions? I wandered around today and talked to all sorts of people. Two impressions. First that this is not a gathering of extremists. No doubt there are passionate convictions around. But people who deal with people in all their variety and complexity have a sort of innate moderation about them. And many of the people I met today are priests who spent long years in pastoral ministry before becoming bishops. It makes a difference.
Thanks for the on-the-spot reporting, bishop David. Keeping you all in prayer from Canada here.
Great! Alan – I’ll look forward to your seminar on pragmatically feasible relationships. Perhaps you will be invited to run it as part of the spouses programme as well. Meanwhile, I look forward to the bloggers’ meeting tomorrow.
I think your arrangements resemble what we did once, on a holiday in the same venue. We had a TV in the other room…
Glad you’ve found a solution, far from the muddy fields.
Phew! This is a great relief to me, David. Living arrangements sound like what Lucy and I had notionally envisaged and it’s good to know it’s pragmatically feasible.
