Oxford Diocese Clergy Conference Day 1

What I’m thinking after the first day of the conference ….
The welcome, good organisation and attention to detail of the organising team is giving a very strong message of affirmation and appreciation of the clergy attending. I am impressed by this.
So far the content of the speeches has been variable. Bishop Victoria Matthews of Christchurch New Zealand is a powerful presence when she speaks. She brought profound thoughts linking imagining and memory from the experience of the destruction of the earthquake in Christchurch.
Bishop John’s speech was titled “The State we’re in”. I feel it did not entirely address that topic; because it was mainly an overview of factors affecting the church at various scales.
