Jun 25 2017 - Brexit

For that to happen would be a disaster if our negotiators, faced with the united determination of the EU, go into the room without confidence in their backing in the UK. It might turn us inwards and forfeit the opportunity to be a country the world admires and blesses for our generosity and vision. Obviously it would be under the authority of parliament, especially the Commons. It would need to be cross-party and chaired by a senior politician, on privy council terms. It could not bind parliament, but well-structured it could draw much of the poison from the debate.feedback

I think we probably felt that with Hannah. There was something that had been really wonderful about her life.

As a parish priest, I took 500, 600, 700 funerals. You hear what's said about people and on the whole people stick to saying no ill of the dead. But sometimes you get a different harmony in the tunes that they sing about the person they've lost, and a harmony that is deeper and more beautiful than normal.feedback

May 10 2017 - Israel

We know from history in this region that determined leadership by the president of the United States, together with patient working by lots of other people in the background, often unknown, can tip things very, very decisively.

It does seem, listening to many, that internationally perhaps the planets are aligning. Perhaps a moment of opportunity is coming that may not repeat itself for a while. As a Christian, as a religious leader, my hope and prayer is that we can find a way within the region of confidence being rebuilt. There are many surprises in this world at the moment. Perhaps there might be a surprise that would be of unqualified joy to the whole world, that would unravel so many issues, if there could be progress in dealing with the tragedy that has been here for so long.feedback

Just because in a political campaign various words get bandied around, I don't think Christians should give up and say we don't have the copyright of the word any longer.

You can pick bits out and say 'oh, that's very rightwing', you can go to the next bit and say 'oh, they're a bunch of trendy lefties', and you keep going to and fro. We're not on the same axis.feedback

The role of the U.N. Secretary General's Special Envoy on Refugees, Angelina Jolie Pitt, is one that has been extraordinary. What she said just now sums up so beautifully the issues we are facing, and puts it so precisely in terms of the challenge that there is.

As a nation we're celebrating the birth of someone who in due course will be the head of state. That's extraordinary. It gives you this sense of forward looking, of the forwardness of history as well as the backwardness of history, and what a gift to have this new life and to look forward.feedback
