Difficult Decisions

I love the Church of England but she is not without flaws! Regular readers will remember me writing about a safeguarding issue that has been bugging the Mhinisteir in the last wee while. The good news is that it is now a Diocesan matter. The bad news is that nobody wants to do anything about it. It appears to me that in the Church of England, Dioceses are afraid to make difficult decisions; everyone wants to be popular. What they fail to recognise is that this makes the life of a parish priest hell as he has to deal with the naysayers; it detracts the parish priest from the REAL work.

While all this is happening, Dioceses love to repeat the mantra that clergy well being is their number one priority. Bah humbug!!!😀
