Dad was always keen to stress that the Orthodox Church had "valid orders." I think he would approve of Kallistos Ware.
A month from today will be the anniversary of Dad passing on. If you don't believe in purgatory meditate on his last month, caught by NHS bureaucracy in hospital when he should simply have been moving between care homes.
I had a dream last night in which Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and I were doing yoga in a nuclear missile silo. I imagine that there are rich psychological pickings there given my state of mind.
