Great that you got to meet John. At least in Ireland it's on the agenda. I'm not so sure it's even made it anywhere near the agenda within most Anglican circles down here.

for anyone interested, there is info on Brian McLaren coming to Ireland here: http://www.emergentireland.com/. Not much at the moment, but more news to come...


glad you had a good time Jonny. Great thoughts on the situation here. And I suppose I can't show up on this blog today without saying nice work on the football...ya b@£$*£d! ;)


john hebenton is a neat guy. glad you 2 could connect.


After spending a few days in Ireland the week following your trip, Jonny, I can say that the context in Ireland is very different from North America and from the UK. Cultural commentary that I came across there suggests that the enlightenment and the reformation didn't even really touch down in Ireland, implying that they've arrived in a similar emerging postmodern milieu as the UK, but through a far different route. The implications are huge, as are the windows of opportunity for the Church. Good stuff happening there.
