Need a few days break from ordinary life and that can include blogging ... but for the keen readers, here are a few things that have caught my eye, around the world, including Anglican land:
Bartican 50 or the 50th Anniversary of Karl Barth's visit to Vatican 2.
Talking of Rome and 50th Anniversaries, there is one happening about now for the Anglican Centre in Rome, significantly the celebratory service is being jointly led by ++Welby and the Pope.
Update: joint communique here.
Speaking of ++Welby, reminds us of his team and Lambeth Palace where a new appointment has been made: "The Archbishop of Canterbury has appointed Rt. Rev. Anthony Poggo, Bishop of Kajo-Keji in South Sudan, as his new adviser for Anglican Communion affairs."
While on specifically Anglican matters, here and here are a couple of pieces from the Living Church as part of a discussion on common prayer and whether diversity in prayer is a good thing or makes "common prayer" into "complicated prayer." (You can track back to the original article from either responsive article).
Having journeyed to Rome, London, the States we can return to the fabulous Down Under, but now to observe respectfully the passing of a noted Australian theologian, Bill Dumbrell.
