The videos – General Convention Nightly – from the US Episcopal Church are very informative but also quite difficult to watch with a straight face!. Imagine the Ten O’Clock news read by vicars! Or remember those episodes of Father Ted featuring talent competitions where every contestant on the show is a priest in a clerical collar? There is something faintly hysterical about these news bulletins. Americans have an amazing capacity to bring the most advanced methodology to very traditional content. The last four minutes of the Thursday night bulletin has a meditation by Archbishop John Sentamu which is good. But check out the interview with the Archbishop of Botswana, about 15 minutes or so into the stream. I found what he had to say about listening and dialogue extremely encouraging.
