Monstrous World! Dangerous Conceit! On what is NOT maybe NOT really NOT happening at Lambeth and in the Anglican world

A MUST MUST READ: From Bishop Alan’s Blog:

Various people around here have been experiencing a weird disconnect between what the media are saying about this event and how it feels for those of us actually here. One member’s 90 year old mother, after reading inflammatory twaddle in her Canadian paper phoned specially to warn her son “Now don’t you go stirring up trouble!”

(…)

The Times seems to be making the news as much as reporting it, in the tradition of journalists who used to give out stones to Northern Ireland youths to provide pictures for the evening news. Shame on them both. What is actually going on in here is generally delightful, global in scale, light of touch, with a lot of laughter, prayer and joy in one another. One person I met here said to me “It’s so sad that shit stirrers can’t understand anything except shit.” No comment.
