The last Post...

A few days ago, on a night I couldn't sleep, I wrote a post. It was not my best work. In particular, I insulted people who had had the courage and vision to allow themselves to be nominated as bishop of our diocese. Of course, I didn't tell you which candidates I had in mind, but I knew and God knew, and that's enough. I was indulging in exactly the behaviour which was so painful to me last electoral synod. It was unnecessary and it was counter to the Gospel and I am sorry for it. So I have removed the post.

There's no excuses for bad behaviour but there are reasons and I had my reasons helpfully explained in a book by David Bohm, conversations with Shirley Brunton and Wes Sandle and an email from my sister Val. I am very grateful for all these benefactors, and if I can fit it into a blog post, I'll tell you about it sometime.

For a moment there, when I read the heading, I thought this was to be your "Last" post ... thankfully not! Keep writing, it's good for our souls as well as yours.

I think it's a person with great inner strength who can say that they've changed their mind, that they were wrong, or that they are sorry.

I don't know the ins and outs of the story behind the story, but I think your post this time around is admirable.

Take care.
