Sum up what your blog is about.
Examining religio-political agendas with politico-religious objectives.

Why are you doing your blog?
His Grace just told you.

What’s the funniest entry on your site?
The intelligence and erudition of His Grace’s communicants display a proliferation of charm and wit.

What is your writing style?
Classically entertaining.

What do people commonly say about your site?
That it is addictive.

What would you be doing if you weren’t doing your blog?
Writing sermons.

Why should someone visit your site?
Because whichever way you turn, you cannot ignore the religious dimension of life, and decisions taken on that have political implications.

What did you learn from your first love?
That one can be loved, wanted, needed, and that such a need makes the heart whole.

Are there any blogs, you enjoy reading?
Yes, but they don’t beat the Bible.

If you could invite anyone to a dinner party who would it be and why?
Jesus. Not for more wine, but because he split history in two.

What one website would you recommend and why?
Anglican friends of Israel, because Israel unjustly gets an appalling press, and is increasingly sidelined by the Church of England.

Tell us about a good deed you have done recently.
I do them in secret; the reward is greater.

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
His Grace has an ordered and reasoned mind; nothing is random.

What advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?
His Grace was not then resurrected.

Any interesting travel stories?
Lots, but it would be like showing your readers His Grace’s holiday snaps, and he refuses to intentionally bore anyone.

Does God exist?
Most certainly.

What’s the most incredible thing that ever happened to you?
Being burned at the stake in 1556. It hurt.

Now it’s your turn! Ask me one question, anything you like.

What is your spiritual inclination?

Joe Blogs : My inclination is more towards the Bhuddist philosophy. I don't profess to follow any religion though.
