had a coffee with my friend Bernard… the table was vacated but the signs of having communed remained
Anne and I have escaped to Dunedin to listen to three lectures by Bishop William Willimon from the US. He is talking on Church & Ministry in a post-modern world. So far he has encouraged the Holy Spirit to let loose in England (he thinks they need some livening up!) and claimed, as we all would, that he believes in everything Jesus has said about homosexuality in the gospels.
He is lively and provocative and it is great to listen to one of our mentors in the preaching of the Gospel!
