I received the heads up (thanks Richard) of this recording of Archbishop Rowan’s address to the recent Synod meeting.
Archbishop Rowan talks about the current situations ‘of freedom’ facing the church and advocates a 3D listening and decision making process as we seek a way ahead together and recover a sense of balanced liberties. It won’t surprise many that again he encourages listening and learning from each other, which is clearly the correct thing to be doing.
I like this quote towards the end of his talk:
‘we shall discover our blessedness as we hunger for what the neighbour, the stranger and the opponent has to give and as we find the time for them to give and us to receive it’.
It’s only about 28 minutes long … go listen!
