Dr John Sentamu warns of dangers of power as Church seeks centralisation

[Times Online] 12 July 2009--The Archbishop of York today delivered a fierce warning over the pursuit of power as the Church of England prepared to debate a massive centralisation of power into the hands of senior clergy.

Preaching at York Minster at the Eucharist for members of the General Synod, Dr John Sentamu told them that they were in danger of forgetting their priorities.

The attempted power grab, considered to be a way of cutting costs, comes as Synod members are being asked to take a demand back to parishes for a doubling of donations to finance a pensions black hole.
