Diary

Diary

Diary: What I found depressing about these "museums of atheism" - they were everywhere you went in the USSR - was not that they were always housed in closed-down churches. The sad and worrying thing about them was how persuasive they were

Diary

David Winter: Surely death is both a great mystery and a great adventure, not a subject to be avoided at all costs, even in church

Diary

John Wall: THE last one happened at Butlins, in Bognor Regis - and, to my huge surprise, I loved it. I am referring to the Chichester diocesan clergy conference eight years ago; and it was with memories of water slides and "hi-de-hi" holiday-camp cabins that I rolled up to this year's conference at the University of Kent at Canterbury

Diary: Serenhedd James

Diary: I DO not claim to play the organ well; but I suppose I play it well enough. A friend plays in much the same way, and when we both spent a weekend at his parents' house in the country, not so long ago, there was a certain inevitability about what would be required on the Sunday morning

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
