How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty!

There is much to be found about tents in the Bible including a reference in the beautiful Psalm 84 from which the heading is taken.

In the advance of civilization and its dwelling places there is no better expression than the rise from the tents of desert wanderers to the magnificent cathedrals as the house of God.

I am not suggesting that those dwelling in tents outside the house of God are wicked, rather their good intentions are misdirected. The church has enough problems without another split over how to deal with protesters who have chosen to set up their tents in a way that has no effect on their target but is causing great harm to the church, the latest casualty being the Dean of St Paul's.

Enough is enough. It is too easy to punish the innocent for cheap publicity. It is time to strike camp and move on.
