All significant truths are private truths. As they become public, they cease to be truth; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst catchwords.
The Archdruid is an inspiration to us all. Whenever I think of a naked St. Francis making snowmen or the Blessed Angela of Foligno being tempted to think herself unworthy to wash lettuce I consider the Archdruid and know that people of faith can be sane(ish.)
I'll second that, Sue. Archdruid for ABC, I say!
'Anglican Communion' - a body of Christians who feel free not to be in communion with anyone who disagrees with them.Janet
FUN! I do wonder if the idea has been lost by some of fellow brethren... What miseries some people are... I do think not enough has been made of 'Flying Bishops' - I'd really like one of these as the new ABC... Imagine one in full regalia - cope and mitre for a national celebration... He could swoop down from the clerestorey - perhaps to an organ arrangement of Lloyd Weber's 'Phantom of the Opera'!? Oh how viewing figures would go up for some doleful Royal Waxwork's event!We need FUN! If only as an anaesthetic or consolation for the countless blows, slights and malice that we suffer from our more conservative Brethren... Mind you, as I said on a recent comment I left on Heresy Corner, earlier this evening: ‘Yet [our conservative chums] are capable of the odd miracle or two... They seem to be able to turn anything into whine...’
Love the idea of the ABC swooping down as a flying bishop! Definitely we need fun. I do at the moment anyhow!
