It has just emerged (or may have emerged some time ago) that someone got into what could possibly have been a disagreement with someone else. It might not have been a disagreement as such, but it might have been. It could have been more a lack of agreement, although I’m not saying that that was the case. It was, as I understand it, over something that was said, or done, or perhaps said and done. Some people may have said that it was more about what was said, and I’ve heard it said that others have maintained that it was more about what was done. I’m not saying that anything was said, or that anyone was done, but then I’m not saying that nothing was said, or that nothing was done. If it was I may or may not have known the full facts, and even if I did know them they were only the facts as I understood them.
The incident (not that I’d call it that), occurred some time ago, although not that long ago. It depends what sort of time scale you are looking at. I’m not trying to make out that it was a recent occurrence, but it may not have been more than a number of months or years ago.
Some bloggers may or may not have written about it, although I’m not suggesting you should read their articles. Also there may have been news stories, which you may choose to read should you wish to do so (not that I’m saying there have been any). The people writing about it may have got their information right, or they may have got it wrong, and you should bear that in mind if you choose to read them, although I’m not for one moment suggesting that you should do such a thing.
I’ve tried to tell you as much as I can but for certain reasons I may have needed to keep some of the details vague. Writing in a more specific way could possibly have caused some problems, although I’m not saying that there is any reason for thinking that it would cause any problems.

I know, it looks a bit similar to things I have already done. Also clumsy with the ‘that that’. But I had to post something to remind myself that completing a cartoon is still an achievable aim.
Feel free to repost. You could put some sort of link back if you wanted.

Come on now, you can’t complain. I haven’t posted any cat photos since 2007 (don’t check).
Evie sits on the pile of paper in my home office. Yes, that is the original artwork for the cover of ‘The Exciting World of Churchgoing‘. She sits on the documents in the hope that a game of ‘cord’ will be forthcoming. ‘Cord’ is a game involving a piece of cord. It is similar to another game called ‘ribbon’, which owing to constraints of time and space I don’t have time to explain.
This is the reason I needed my own office – to stop such diversions using up my precious time. In my job it is important that one is able to stare out of the window at the traffic on the dual carriageway without any distractions.
(Do tell me when writing that gets tiresome)

New today on CartoonChurch.com: The division of labour (click that link for the larger version).
I’m envisaging this cartoon being used by clergy with slack congregations to give them a bit of gentle encouragement. Also churches on the verge of introducing sticker schemes. If this is you you can find re-usage information on the page in question.

I got into a little bit of trouble with yesterday’s photograph – hopefully this one is less offensive. Before you ask – no, I didn’t ask permission, and yes, I was hiding in the car park like the paparazzi.
I shouldn’t really be posting on the blog at past 1am, but I’m not really sleeping well at the moment and yesterday’s one didn’t seem to do me too much harm. I find blogging good for digestive problems and anxiety.
In other news, it is General Synod this weekend. I’ll be posting things about it on the Church Times Blog and/or website. I don’t know which yet. I won’t be hiding in the car park – we have special reporters we send to do that (joke). General Synod is good for sleeplessness, but less good for digestive problems.

It appeared in the same newspaper as yesterday’s one, it is from the same book as yesterday’s one, the publishers are the same as for yesterday’s one, and you can buy it in the same places as yesterday’s one. For further information see yesterday’s one.

We joined the Bradwell Pilgrimage on Saturday. It was an enjoyable day with people from the Diocese of Chelmsford and the Archbishop of York in attendance. I could bore you with numerous photographs, but this is my favourite:
Above: Man protesting about heretics who stop on the entrance markings at school drop-off and pick-up times. Also the Church of Rome.

If you’ve enjoyed this cartoon and the previous seven why not buy the book – you’ll find them all in My Pew. Whilst I’m on the subject, the next book, The Exciting World of Churchgoing, is published this summer.
