Your answers

 

When reading a book that gives frequent Bible references, it would be very convenient if one could keep a computer handy and use an app to display the Bible verse or passage on the screen. Does such an app exist?

 

On my iPad, I have an app for the NIV Audio Bible. This is the complete Bible read aloud by David Suchet.

It gives you the opportunity to search for any combination of book, chapter, and verse in both the Old and New Testaments.

Your questions

 

Is there a legal reason that churches don’t advertise at wedding fairs? The public are beginning to think that they can’t get married in churches. This is an absurd situation.

Given the recent news of the discovery of an Anglo-Saxon Christian graveyard at Great Ryburgh, near Fakenham, in Norfolk: do archaeologists require any special permission for disturbing such Christian graveyards? Even if not documented, is there not an implication that under common law it was consecrated by the custom and practice of its being a Christian graveyard? Finally, it is still legal to bury people in their own land, if it is not formally consecrated. Can they be unceremoniously dug up, inspected, moved, etc.? If not, what is the difference?

How much bullying does an individual have to endure from an assistant curate before senior clergy at benefice and diocesan levels take notice? Does this vary from diocese to diocese?
