i spent much of this afternoon composing a witty and clever response to this article which is put on the Sydney Anglican website today, but have realised that i seem to have the capacity for only a small amount of righteous indignation at the moment, and i’ve decided that i would like to focus that on this, instead (it’s not too late to ring your MP!).
Two comments, though. i’ve emailed Madeleine Collins, author of the Sydney Anglican article, tonight. She didn’t try to contact me in any way before the article was published, and I would have valued the chance to clarify some misconceptions, and to explain the theology and ecclesiology that is at the foundation of the worship that is part of this project. It seems only fair, since it’s what i would have liked, to offer her the chance to respond to my questions privately.
But if anyone can tell me how to contact Bishop Forsyth*, I’d really like to ask him about the statement he makes,
