It seems Acts of Hope cannot avoid all things Lambeth. Today we bring you a fine essay by my friend and Anglican mentor (the Rev. Dr.) Bill Countryman, biblical scholar and scholar of Anglican spirituality and history.
It's one of those read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest days.
Do have a look. The essay is called "Listening to God and to each other: the bishop and human sexuality."
Its subtitles (not sure if they are from Bill himself or from the editors of the Integrity newsletter in which the essay appears today) are
"Listening with humility / engaging in real conversation"
"Who is heard / who gets to speak"
"Faithful risk taking / listening in ambiguity"
I like the fact that this day of conversation on sexuality takes place on the feast of that great expert in discernment, Ignatius of Loyola.
