Having spent a long day in Bristol attending Nick Adams’ ordination yesterday and having travelled a much shorter distance this morning to Southwark to witness Poppy’s ordination I consider the Cof E has much to be proud of and hopeful about. Being in a packed Cathedral on such occasions can provide a gratifying, but alas momentry and illusory, sense that all is well! But even though all is not well, much certainly is!
All of those who know them both know for certain that they will bring a richness of experience and a passionate integrity to the parishes they will work in. I sense neither of them would have quite coped with Dibley!
