Don’t Change Church’s Constitution

cross

In the next few weeks some synods, in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, are reconsidering the request from General Synod Te Hinota Whanui to change our Church’s Constitution. The majority need to agree to the change for it to proceed. In the considerations about this last year, no diocesan synod voted… Continue Reading

Another Collect in Common

Salt and Light

Once again, Roman Catholics and Anglicans/Episcopalians share a common collect this coming Sunday (August 30). I am working on producing a full set of shared collects for the church year. My work so far can be found here: Book of Prayers in Common. My rendering for this coming Sunday and the week following is: Let… Continue Reading

Christian Reason

reason

In an age in which “reason” is regularly contrasted with “religion” in our infotainment-driven media, it has been encouraging to find a couple of articles in the last week or so that firmly put reason with religious faith, not against it.

My understanding is that this is a not-for-profit documentary by Lydia Smith who walked the Camino in 2008. She managed to get people walking the Camino to be part of this film. The film has been edited down from… Continue Reading

Christian Mindfulness

Centering Prayer

Mindfulness is everywhere. Practices from Buddhism and Hinduism are being used in home, schools, and workplaces. People are cleansing their chakras, feeling their breathing, and visualising… Schools are practicing mindfulness at the start of every lesson… While some have criticised the trendiness as McMindfulness, I want to focus here on this being yet another example… Continue Reading

Ultreia et Suseia!

Ultreia

Before I went to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago, I knew about the saying, “Ultreia!” and the response, “et Suseia!”. “Ultreia!” was what one pilgrim said to another, and “et Suseia!” is the reply. This Latin/French/Spanish means something like, “Go further!” and “And go higher!” The words appear in the 11th century hymn,… Continue Reading
