    The book I am reading at the moment is Elephant, Camel (and tea) by Christine J Matthews and I. E. Petrie.

    I am finding it quite delightful, and a springboard for much thinking. It is in a sense Unsystematic Theology, in the sense of the Parish Clerk who constantly finds his work interrupted, and then on reflection realise that the interruptions were the work. It is not a work of classical Anglicanism so don't expect that here, however it is a great read, and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    Our region is in a Covid19 lockdown at the moment, so this has been a fabulous piece of sunshine.

    Sometimes the most thought provoking works are not overt religious works.
