Thanks, Jonny. Agree about the possibilities of the hour. To make the best of them we need (1) to recognise that the strength of the Church lies at the local level, not the centre which is all over the place. For that reason the best way forward is likely to come from where the life, vitality and missional engagement is, not from the largely dysfunctional top down. (2) The evidence of Linda Woodhead and colleagues is significant. It's all very well sneering at sociologists, but the best way of renewing our tradition for real is to strengthen its roots and align with our values whilst being prepared to express this in new ways, not simply to find more efficient ways of doing all the stuff we've been doing in the past.
