Vestry Talk

Here is the recording of the address. I’d like also to add a comment regarding the story I told regarding Archbishop Winston, later in the morning. Of how his way of Knowing, deeply embedded in his context was profoundly different to ours, where we are trained to think as if we are not part of the world and look out at it. So he tried to help us by using Power point, but his way of Knowing which we might called ‘Participatory’, or ‘Knowing by Love’ cannot be translated into bullet points.

So the most Truthful aspect of a funeral eulogy are tears and silence and to a degree poetry . . .
