Your questions:

Can anyone give the source of the St John Chrysostom quotation in Jeremy Taylor’s Holy Living and Dying: “The result of all which we may reade in the words of S. Chrysostom: To know the art of alms, is greater than to be crowned with the Diadem of kings. And yet to convert one soul is greater than to poure out ten thousand talents into the baskets of the poor”? (This is is from Chapter IV: “Of the Christian Religion”, section viii “Of Alms”.)

A list of conference speakers in­­cludes the dean of a cathedral, some bishops, a reader (in a university), a vicar, a canon chancellor, a Regius professor (a residentiary canon), and a dean/precentor. When Readers are being asked to change their title to “licensed lay ministers” to make their role clearer to people, is the Church of England missing a greater opportunity?
