Lambeth (1)

July 17, 2008 (2)

A number of years ago I used to gather groupings of people with the same professional interests from time to time. The most enduring and useful of these was the one around media, the majority of people in the group being involved with print journalism (including some senior editors of The Washington Post), television and political staffs and so on. One of the most interesting discussions that I remember was how many of the journalists saw their role with regard to religion as being the translation of one sub culture(religion) to a majority culture (secular readers of newspapers) and how fraught with peril that task can be. This shows up in some of the commentary following Ruth Gledhill’s (of The Times) excellent blog which you can find here:

Our own bishops have their own Lambeth blog which may be found here:
