Worth Noting
As we outlaw discrimination so we need discernment: Geoffrey Rowell writes in the Times (London) Credo column. 'The devices and desires of the human heart need to be set in order. Against the magnetic field of distorted desire, there must be set the greater and counterbalancing magnetic field of grace and goodness, which for Christians is the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life.'

Like, see what I'm praying?: Christopher Howse writes in the Telegraph (London) on liturgical language. 'Many people, not excluding those who seldom go to church, regret the replacement of Cranmer's splendid language in the Book of Common Prayer by modern but debased prayers in the pick and mix of Common Worship.'
