All there to play for between the Welsh and English sides - turning into a good competition

sooo - a year on, 3 rounds down and 4 teams with 4 points on the league table...
Next round, Ireland should beat Italy even as an away fixture, France will beat Scotland with the home advantage and that leaves England against Wales - at Twickers. With any decent luck a home win.
If so we then have England France and Ireland at the top with 6 points each
All down to the final round...
Wales V Scotland will only be to see who gets the wooden spoon, (and whether Italy gets a white-wash), England V Italy I hope will be an away victory for England (if not something is VERY wrong!) which means it is down to the France V Ireland match to decide who wins on a points difference score between the winner of that match and England....
Odds anyone?

which particular hot-button issue are you on about? Women bishops, inclusive church, gay rights, remarriage of divorcees, ...
and by the way do you mean uninterested or disinterested?

I find this a really interesting topic because I'm perhaps one of the only people in the whole wide world who truly isn't affected by this issue. Yes - I lnow it's odd but I really am totally unaffected and to be honest uninterested in the whole shooting works and this causes so many really interesting effects in others around me.

From many of those in favour I get the, "How can you not be totally onside and desperately keen to see this wrong righted?" approach to things and from the other side of the fence I get the, "How on earth can you not be angry that when the vote was 'No' there was all that 'not listening to he Holy Spirit' stuff and now, having forced things through, played politics and engineered fasttracking and the like they have to cheek to say that 'at last the Church is righting wrongs and listening to God?"

You know what - I don't know what God is saying on this (probably because I'm not listening) and I'm totally ambivalent about the whole shebang and I find it all rather tiresome. I am so very fed up with people who can talk for hours about righting wrongs and equality and all that stuff and yet, if I am frank, I don't think I've heard any of the do five minutes on the Gospel! The passion that both sides demonstrate is amazing - well it would be if it were on winning souls rather than proving points.

Sadly I feel the same for so many of the other issues which attract the, "You must agree with me," mindset. I don't give a fig for all or any of them - I'm about Jesus not politics, power and who has what (unless it's feeding the hungry, freeing the captives and setting the prisoners free that is).

What is odd is that so many I meet appear to have the same viewpoint but are afraid to even admit to thinking such in case it attracts condemnation and so we find that there is a silent (and fearful) underclass developing - and that cannot be right.

So there we are - spleen vented :)

I just sit and pray that God knows enough to run His Church and that we don't find ourselves politically engaged and Gospel poor!

Well, I wont disagree with that! - Incidentally, did you know that Germany is now allowing you to leave the 'gender' box on a birth certificate blank if the infant shows aspects of both genders? (both male & female, could this be considered to be a more true image of God??? :-)  )

What was the gist of the talk on God's double image? That was well before I started going - 2000 was my first year, but I haven't missed any since.

Basically, if I can remember that far back, it was that male and female were both made in the image if God; and that either have to a greater or lessor degree attributes of the other.; and that can sometimes lead to an "imbalance"

A late reply to your late reply Chad!
Thanks, yes I had a wonderful time (most of the time!*) - but as for being the oldest there - CHEEK! I was a spring chicken compared to many... :-)
Sadly I did not have a chance to listen to Jim's talks (I was on duty at the time) but did have a brief chat with him when he was waiting for transport...

*there were times when I was on duty with nothing happening for ages when it got a bit tedious.... but such is the way of things.

Next time you're en route to Land's End, let us know, Vic, we're just over the Tamar!

We holiday each year in a bungalow I part own in East Devon. Sounds parochial, but it's 70 miles and a world away from where I work. Also means we can keep it up for anyone else who wants to stay there for the rest of the year.

A late reply clockman, but did you enjoy Greenbelt?
Did you get to hear Jim Wallis, and if so what did he speak on?

Were you the oldest there? :) Just looked at the stickers in a Bible from when I was last there. Greenbelt 76 and Greenbelt 77!!! I still remember a session by John Peck on "God's Double Image"
