So this is a subject I keep coming back to, but I just feel passionate about the idea of the church being completely loving – loving itself. I love my little corner of the church and I know which bit I prefer to worship in, but I also recognise that it’s all Gods church and who am I to say which bit is ok and which isn’t? God has made all kinds of different people and they all need to meet him in different ways, and so, we have a vast and broad church. Makes sense to me…
There’s been all kinds of stuff recently, been flying around about some people within the Catholic church being not all that happy with some of what Pope Francis has been saying. Personally, and clearly I am not a Catholic, I think he’s amazing.
