Did you catch David Ould on the Project last night.
What a stunning performance. He captured the medium perfectly and was constantly on message. The segue out of the Brooke Satchwell interview that was all about sex on TV was brilliantly winsome. Especially when you check out Charlie’s face while Brooke was talking.
The best bit came near the beginning when Charlie asked “what does it mean to be an Anglican Priest in 2013?”…
“It’s actually pretty much the same as it has been for 2,000 years. I’m opening up the Bible and telling people about the great news of the love of God in Jesus Christ and how it radically can transform your life through forgiveness and why that is not just emotionally and spiritually satisfying but also intellectually and historically credible. The great thing now in 2013 is I that I get to do some of that from an iPad.”
Another great bit was in the bullying segment…
“I wonder if part of it is just that we live more and more in this individualistic culture where everything says “it’s all for you, it’s all for you, it’s all for you” and then you reach a situation where you’re just asked to put yourself out completely for someone else and that notion of sacrificial love which we used to have in our culture just isn’t so prevalent any more. It’s not that people don’t want to, it’s just a model we don’t have any more.”

They had Anglican Priests 2000 years ago?
well of course! Every other brand of minister is just a subsequent derivation from that purest form ;)
In my tribe we are told that the Apostles were all Presbyterians.
Now. Now. We all know David’s new boss is a Presbyterian… but we can’t expect him to have adjusted to the new company line just yet.
It’s Mabo. It’s the vibe. It’s the covenant.
