Bishop Gene Robinson will preach at St. Mary’s, Putney in London on Sunday July 13 at 6 p.m. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has prohibited Robinson from presiding at the Eucharist, but does not have the canonical authority to prohibit him from preaching, although he attempted to dissuade him from doing so. The invitation was made by the Rev. Giles Fraser.

Under the headings of reconsideration and apology, the Living Church made an important point regarding the issue of Bishop Robinson’s right to preach, and we responded in a churlish way.

  1. Susan, It seemed to me that I could have conceeded more gracefully that the point made was a valid one, even though it may have obscured the principal point, which was that Rowan was trying as hard as he could to keep Gene quiet. Jim

  2. Jim, I am with Susan on this, I think you are being too self-critical.
