Men Only Branch in Church of England

The church of England have submitted a new report – with the suggestion of a “men-only” branch of the Church.
The Archbishop is “happy to commend it for prayerful study within the dioceses of the Church of England and to invite other Churches in the Anglican communion and our ecumenical partners to let us have their reflections on it.”

    This is a serious problem, although I want to say that so much of what the Church does is women only. I don’t mean that much of what we do is exclusive and sexist, but rather that we are good at attracting women into our Churches, but very poor at doing stuff that appeals to men!
    This of course is nothing at all to do with your post, I just thought I’d make a joke but then had to write an essay to explain it. Sorry.

    Actually, most denominations have had a “women’s” division for some time, why not a ‘men’s’ division.

    Any comment on the U.S. election over there? What do the Brits and Scots think about Bush’s reelection. Just curious about the perception.

  • andrew says:

    Alan – i just blogged what i thought, which is quite positive. The English and Scots generally are not at all happy with Bush, and will no doubt think my blog post is far too optimistic.
    but honestly, I dont really want to have that conversation on my blog and would rather that someone else host it.
