Bishop Wright May Be Right

[VirtueOnline] August 19, 2005--A recent... [article] in the Guardian from Bishop Tom Wright criticised the declining quality of debate in the councils of the Church of England. 'Reason,' he wrote, 'is in short supply right now,' adding, 'When someone says in a debate, 'What I feel is...' the chair ought to intervene. What people feel is neither here nor there in a debate.' Wright is undoubtedly correct, but the rot has been allowed to go on for too long, encouraged by our educational system, not least in the area of theological 'equipping'.
