Not particularly oriented to the affairs of global Anglicanism today ... yesterday we had a 5.0 shake, felt by many as vigorous as the first great 7.1 shake on 4th September, but not lasting as long. Prior to yesterday's shake our daughter was looking forward, as many Canterbury teenagers were, to a day off school today. The projected day off being courtesy of a rolling series of strikes by secondary school teachers throughout our nation.
But wisdom prevailed immediately after the shake. "Too much disruption for students," the teachers union leaders decided. Canterbury teachers will work today instead of striking. And many hopes of a morning in bed and the afternoon at the mall were shattered :)
