A good translation of ekklesia is 'public Christian gatherings.' Nevertheless even I was taken aback to see this description of services on the noticeboard of St Andrew's Anglican Cathedral, Sydney this week where I have been undertaking my internet fast.
Next week I will offer some reflections of an ecclesiological and missiological kind re my visit to Sydney (which was strictly holiday, not ecclesiastical, but we did pop in to St Andrew's Cathedral and Sydney's piece de resistance, St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral, an absolutely magnificent cathedral in every way).
Meantime, thanks for many recent comments here which I have just posted.
Update: On arriving home I see that the tin cans and strings between Nairobi, Sydney and Lambeth have been carrying quite a bit of traffic with the upshot that Archbishop Justin Welby will be re-configuring his diary and travel schedule to meet with the GAFCON Primates.
