Last Friday I shared evening prayers with the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury. We were in Westminster Abbey - and so were a few hundred other people. I guess it was very much trad church, rather than anything of a fresh expression. However, it was an important reminder of the value of the tradition and the need for a range of things to take their place in being church.
We certainly need to find new and different ways, but there is immense value in the traditions and in the news that such occasions generates.
