Modern Believing


Modern Believing (2020), 61, (3), 251–258.


Blessed in its cathedrals, the Church of England (and by implication, other Anglican associational bodies) finds itself with flourishing communities both with and without explicit Christian commitment, adjusting to necessary changes which will hopefully continue to make possible graced lives of prayer, gratitude and community in the interplay of cathedral and diocese, secular insight and experience, the public service of its liturgy, and the living presence and experience of the Trinity of Christian credal belief.
