Bishops, Blogs & Lambeth

I'm finding it fascinating that the media is so interested in the Lambeth Conference. Of course it may be very important for the C of E, but I'm struggling to see why BBC news finds it such a priority.

If you're not yet exhausted by it, you can actually read what Bishops are saying on their blogs. A good place to start is Bishop Alan's Blog (Alan Wilson, Bishop of Buckingham), which also has a feed from several other episcopal blogs down the right-hand side of the screen.

One you will find there, although he can't attend the Lambeth conference officially is Canterbury Tales From the Fringe, Bp Gene Robinson's blog of his time over here in the UK round the edges of the lambeth conference. It includes an account of being heckled at Putney and also an evening with Sir Ian McKellen. Why not take a look and make up your own mind.
