Capacity – incapacity

I’m looking forward to tomorrow – first day in the office for ten days. Bits of Anglican Communion business, a meeting of the College of Bishops, interviews in the Brechin Episcopal election process and today’s Mission and Ministry Board have kept me busy. But the wonders of technology, the ever-increasing ability of Sharon to read my mind and – no doubt – the power of prayer keep the flow of e mail and other communication going. It’s just that I never get to meet anybody.

I slipped in a Thought for the Day in Dundee yesterday – I thought the incapacity theme was appropriate.

And tomorrow I’m doing the last of my Lent Roadshows. Casting the Net seems to stir among people an appetite for learning. So I’ve been going around the diocese encouraging people to talk with me about faith. I can think of no better way of spending my time.


  1. Dear David,
    I enjoy your blog a lot.My lillte bit of thoughtfulnes every few days in between all the frantic rush.
    Our big problems continue in N.I.but what a show of cross communuity support for Rowan Kerr’s family yesterday.That is were hope lies.Easter I am sure will help re enforce.We still have a lot of Church goers whom I think are seeing more in common with each other specially as we realise how seculuar society is becoming in England
    ( or at least that is what the TV gives us).
    You Thought for the Day is one you must have done for Janaury 2011 not on capacity at all.
    Take Care of yourself.

    1. Hi Catherine
      Yes it slipped through – I’ve corrected it now.
      I’ve been watching the news with interest – I thought the policeman’s mother was absolutely magnificent.
      Hope all’s well with you and Arthur and that the roses are in good order!
