Diary

Diary: Robert Mackley

Diary: A BRIEF respite from my position as Clerk of Works and Chief Labyrinther was provided last week by the triennial diocesan clergy conference

Diary

Sister Rosemary on infant baptism, and being a state church

Diary: Jonathan Boardman

Jonathan Boardman: THE annual synod for the archdeaconry of Italy and Malta was recently held in Palermo

Diary: John Pridmore

THE Cold War may not have resumed, but Anglo-Russian relationships are certainly icier. Getting a visa to go Russia is a chilling process, as we found recently

Diary

David Winter: THE chuggers have also taken to the phones. What disappoints me, perhaps unreasonably, is that respected Christian charities and mission societies have also begun to employ them

Diary

John Wall: A new first for me: I have just blessed a bus. Now, departing pilgrims I've blessed, and fairground rides on Brighton pier; sundry objects of devotion - cruets, ciboria, and other ecclesiastical paraphernalia; but this was my first bus

Diary

Glyn Paflin: Margot Asquith, like Clarissa Eden, had a crisis flowing through her Downing Street drawing-room; but hers lasted much longer, of course - until it brought down her husband, politically, in 1916

Diary

Robert Mackley: In a dyed-in-the-wool Anglo-Catholic parish, it turns out that even the criminals are High Church

Diary: Sister Rosemary

Sister Rosemary: Our priority must be to do all we can to make sure that churches are safe places for all, especially for those who are most vulnerable. But the necessary checks, and the barring of access to anyone who might possibly present a risk, come at a huge cost to the mission of the Church

Diary: Jonathan Boardman

Diary: I COUNT Leopold Hampel my best friend, I guess, since, were I planning to marry, I would ask him to be my best man. I was the groom's witness - Trauzeuge des Bräutigams - at his and Monika Sulm's wedding in Vienna in summer 1995, and our affection for one another seems never to have faded, though we meet infrequently.

Diary

John Pridmore: IN ONE respect, life in retirement has not changed since I was on the payroll of the Church of England. I no longer climb in and out of pulpits, but, defying the psalmist, I continue to "exercise myself in matters that are too high for me".
