lived example

Many are the lessons
That we’ve learnt together since the dawn which made of us
A conversation; soon, though, we shall be a song

(from Friedensfeier by Friedrich Holderlin)

I’m sold out to ecumenicalism, to a vision of an ideal of community that doesn't recognise sectarianism in any form and which looks with hope to all in unique individuality & harmonious relations. This is really not by abstract thought and high ideals, but because of experience. Through my encounters, with people of many stripes, one of the most important of which is a collective of people I joined back in early 2002.


There have been, and will doubtless be, regular reference to things discussed in the 24-7 discussion forums but now might be a good time to flag it up deliberately. It is, for many of us, a highly sympathetic and progressive online community. This self made self made write still manages to articulate much of what I have found in it, witness to hope for the Church as a whole, and wider society.
