Quote of the day

Bishop David Jenkins, via Steve Tilley's blog,

David Jenkins, former Bishop of Durham, once told a group of us that he had been advised that if a small Durham church closed the congregation would not go elsewhere. His reply, which I can still pretty much recall word-for-word:

'Fancy even considering, even considering, keeping a church open where the congregation had learned so little of what it was to be church that they would not go to another one if theirs closed.'
