Hello everyone. Another cartoon after a few days break. We were in Exeter – let me know if you want to see my holiday photos of a car park.

As far as ordination goes I have no particular wisdom. But here’s a short paragraph on non-ordination from an interview with Ronald Blythe in tomorrow’s Church Times. I quite liked it.

But he resists ordination himself. A Dean of St Paul’s, Alan Webster, tried to persuade him to become a priest, as did a Bishop of St Ed­mundsbury & Ipswich, Leslie Brown. “I couldn’t get them to under­stand that it wasn’t my role,” he says. “I actually think the laity is enormously important. The laity means the people of God.”
