Hello everybody, this is your Anglican news reporter
With all the news that is news across the nation
On the scene at the Anglican Communion
There seems to have been some disturbance here
Pardon me sir, did you see what happened?*
Ahem. Sorry. This is work, not procrastination as it might first appear. I have not entirely done the tax return, but I am getting there. Never let it be said that tax is not taxing.
Don’t ask where the Ray Stevens quote above came from. We’ll call it stress.
Ok, Anglican matters of interest this Monday evening:
The main Archbishops are about to have a big meeting
It is the primates meeting. A few Bishops from the USA are going along – one that has just been announced is one Bishop Epting (News report of some sort). It turns out that Bishop Epting has a blog entitled ‘That We All May Be One – reflections on unity’, and he sounds like a thoroughly decent sort of fellow.

Bishop Mike’s Blogosphere
Bishop Mike Hill of Bristol has been sharing some of his favourite blogs. He mentioned my inaccurate comment about the C of E being ‘fairly anti blogging’. My line is now ‘the more centralised institutions of the Church of England have generally been fairly anti-blogging up until now’.
How many hours a week should a Vicar work?
Rev Sam and the Mad Priest have a chat about it here.
U2Charist coming to Britain
U2Charist to Hit England for the First Time
Seating will be moved so that the 500-strong congregation can dance or wave their arms. Bishop Ellis, who will be chief celebrant, said he had yet to decide whether to swap vestments for jeans.
Too right – you can’t wave your arms with the seating there.
Yes, yes yes. I’ll get back to my receipts and my columns now. But I do also have to do a lot of thinking about the Anglican church at the moment. In fact I spent this afternoon in Starbucks in Basildon making notes on that very topic. Any thoughts you might have on all things ‘Anglican Communion’ would be welcomed.
