The Methodist Church has responded to my recent criticism of their yellow wallpaper by launching a new website. They do not actually say that this is why they have released a new website, but the timing seems terribly co-incidental otherwise.
Having had a look around it I think it is very good. It took me a little while to get to grips with the main 4 or 5 sections, but once I had done that I discovered a wealth of information about the Methodists and what they do.
As an aside, I have learnt that the cafe at Westminster Central Hall is called ‘Wesley’s Cafe‘. One assumes this because the Wesleys used to frequent it for tea and snacks. This might be why the wallpaper colour cannot be changed. If the pale yellow inspired ‘O For a Thousand Tongues’ they can’t really paint over it.
An additional news story because it is Saturday:
Vicars’ football teams required
This appeal has been made on the Diocese of Oxford website for football teams consisting of vicars. These will be required to play against other occupations. The Guardian are organising it. If too many teams of vicars come forward the winners will be decided on penalties.
