Fits like a glove

There was a strong SEC turn-out last night to see ++Idris installed as Deacon of the Skinners and Glovers in Glasgow.  Quite an achievement for an episcopalian bishop [how do we stop people using that?] to find his way to the heart of a significant and historic piece of city life in that way.  Bishop James Jones talked about regeneration in Liverpool and Glasgow – saying it wasn’t worth much unless it had love and justice at its heart.  Sounded to me like the same speech as I once heard Bishop Desmond Tutu making to community workers in Belfast – not much point attempting to build peace unless it has spirituality at its heart.
