My second conference of the week – quote of the day

Was today – about Character Education in church schools. It was a good day (you couldn’t move for bishops at lunch) but the thing that made me smile was the short welcome speech from one of the professors at the Christian University (one of only eleven in the country) where the event was held. She talked about the institution’s values, amongst which was inclusion, “which is shown by supporting gay pride”. I’m sure I heard a jaw or two hit the floor but I was grinning.

She also had another great line about “modelling a religious space as open, wide and quizzical as the empty tomb”. That’s a keeper.
