Richard Holloway's review says it well: "Like many good things in human history, the Anglican Communion is a wonderful anomaly: a disparate and contradictory collection of Christians held together by affection."
Modelling this 'affectionate collection of Christians' on the first century church inspired by Jesus means setting aside the old hierarchical pattern, and giving fresh life to the Christian story. It means 'making holy the ordinary' - ending the divide between 'sacred' and 'secular'. And becoming open to what Dennis Potter, in his final interview, famously called "nowness" the sense of wonder at this world, "you have to experience it... but the glory of it, the comfort of it, the reassurance... and boy! can you celebrate it!"
We have everything we need: the pattern, the guide, the model for living - now it is this call to absorb into our deep understanding all the things we have been told.. the head stuff being accepted by our hearts - and life can never, ever be the same again.
