Hello there Nick.

Interested to read your comments about discussion around the Anglican Covenant. I must say that I don't buy the idea that the term covenant can't be used due to its use in 17th century Scotland. Those particular religious wars are long over, and I think that, as you suggest, it's very healthy to recognise the much more positive Biblical expressions of covenant between God and humanity. Maybe covenants between human and human are of a lesser order though?

If the proposed Anglican Covenant is about statement of belief, do you think that the ancient Creeds might be good enough for us to unite around? Worked in the past when the church was full of division....
