Well said Mr Dean

It was back to North Wales last Saturday for another Dean's installation, this time the Dean of St Asaph, who, in his own words said, "What I am looking forward to most is the worship, utilising all the resources available to us to celebrate the Christian faith in our observance of the festivals through the year." Words echoed by Bishop Gregory, “.... this cathedral is to be a place of encounter, of revelation, of the handing on of the truth of God’s powerful call to conversion in Jesus Christ.”

How refreshingly Christian. Not the politics pushed by the neighbouring Dean of Bangor nor of their Archbishop who must be bitterly disappointed that Nigel Williams isn't Nigella giving a boost to "Bazzer's" aim of parity in senior posts in what he clearly sees as his church. 

Time to move over Archbishop and let your flock hear less politics and more of the Christian message while you still have a church.

  1. Splendid Ancient Briton. Could not agree more, a powerful message from St Asaph. Catholic and Evangelical could only say Amen to that.

    Dean Nigel is the first, and presently, only Welsh speaking Dean for a long time within the Church in Wales. Bishop Gregory is to be congratulated for breaking away from Morganite tradition. Gregory for Archbishop it is then!

    As for the other chronic liability in Llandaf, whom the sisterhood once compared to the second coming, a one liner will be sufficient:

    'Stand not upon the order of your going,
    but go at once.'
