A New Year: Conflict and Concord

Here is a fragment that I wrote on January 1st, New Year's Day.

The current issue of Anglican & Episcopal History arrived this week. I have just read a paper by C. K. Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop, entitled "The Challenge of Definition: Concord and Conflict in Anglicanism." Canon Robertson provides a useful look at the development of the concept of Anglicanism, starting from Richard Hooker: "Hooker's example of letting go of one's own supposed infallibility of opinion in order to learn from and be open to others would become his lasting gift to Anglicanism ... and its defining mark."

That's all I wrote that time. Now I add this line from Marilynne Robertson's Gilead:

Doctrine is not belief, it is only one way of talking about belief.

This is the second in my series of posts that I started earlier.

I'm in a love/hate relationship with virtual memory because of the way prices are always,and I mean always dropping. I hate buying SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (what seems to be) a bargain price only to see it become 10% cheaper a couple of weeks later.

Dear Anonymice,
For number 1 (Feb 7) -- sorry for the delay in responding. The way prices are always dropping doesn't bother me half as much as the fact that I seem to be talking into the wind.

For number 2 (Feb 21) -- Your English could use a little help. Write me and I'll help you.
