A rich experience of the church can anchor you, despite the frustrations.'

Worth Noting
A defensive, Canute-like position: Tom Horwood writes in the Guardian (London) on religious contributions to public debates. 'Today's increasingly aggressive attacks on the role of religion in public life—whether against faith schools, grants to religious organisations or politicians who articulate belief—will only be countered by reasoned argument that offers solutions to the dilemmas that decision-makers face.'

The Bible: Reading and Hearing: The Archbishop of Canterbury's lectures in Toronto at a joint convocation of Trinity College and Wycliffe College. 'Ultimately, Scripture brings us back to the uniquely creative moment of God’s freedom—to the grace of a free self-bestowal that can create what is other and then, by love and welcome, transform that other into a sharer and communicator of the same joyful, generative act.'
