  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    This is a statement of fact by a very tired archbishop who knows better than anyone.

    For the Global South, the Communion is about doctrinal unity. For the rest of us, the Communion is about English Christians jointly reaching out to the lost and the disadvantaged, celebrating our different styles of worship and outreach. In the end, neither side can be kicked out of the Communion.

    He also suggested that it was not the destination, but the journey that was important.

    put me immediately in mind of the passage in The Great Divorce where the priest (or bishop?) doesn't want to stay in Heaven because it would mean he had reached the destination.

    Anyway, I think he is right in his observation, but wrong in thinking it is a good place to leave things.

    You can thank our American marketing companies and HR departments for that one. :)

    One of our most catching exports.

    Is it just me, or does the blog significantly embellish and spin what Rowan actually says in the letter?
