An Esteemed Otter
Bishop Philip pointed out that I had written to Esteemed Otters…. so I could not resist ‘Googling’ (or more accurately ‘Bing-ing’ some.

The Living inLove and Faith Launch
Last week’s emailing to Fellow Readers/LLMs, Church Family and Esteemed Otters (Others) was hurriedly sent around the Living in Love and Faith Launch last Saturday morning. I had written a piece about that Launch but Bishop Hugh’s letter that arrived in inboxes yesterday says it so much better that I have linked it here in case you cant find it in your inbox. It was a very worthwhile morning, and where I do not think it will change much in the way of canon law etc in the near future, I do believe it is a good way forward to promote understanding and a dialogue that is rooted in our love for one another.
I propose that as Readers we might actually do the sessions and go through the materials in a ZOOM format sooner rather than later with perhaps one group meeting in the evening and another during the day. (it would be helpful to have some keen folk to facilitate this though I am happy to set up links.
Please do read +Hugh’s letter and then let me know what you think.
St Piran's Awards
I am now the proud recipient of a St Pirans cross which I shall wear alongside my Reader’s badge when I wear a jacket which is rare these days. For now it is pinned to my computer screen with my Reader Badge and a cross made by Reader Robin West for the Readers in Training residential at Epiphany House. Note-my ready Webcam for this morning’s Morning Prayer Zoom.
The service on ZOOM was uplifting in hearing and seeing all the people who were doing things to support their various communities from technology support to food bank and feeding people in poverty. If you have not red the citations, they are really worth reading on the Diocesan Website as are the articles written by Jac.

Lockdown Evening Viewing
Finally, our evening TV (channel 4) has included the wonderful series with Martin Sheen as president of the United States, “the West Wing” here is a clip of the president talking to a right wing journalist relevant to the Living in Love and Faith Debate even if I am not sure about his point scoring tone…. which is not in the spirit of LLF.
