I'm Hearing Archbishop Peter Jensen Talk Tonight

Christians in the Media are hosting Archbishop Jensen tonight to kick-off their "Starting the Ultimate Relationship" mission. As chief Sydney Anglican watchdog, I felt that I had a responsibility to attend.

Rumour has it that there will be APEC-style fences up in place and people may experience delays travelling down Parramatta Rd and Johnston St. Furthermore, security personnel have been told to shoot to kill, so it's unlikely that I'll be trying any Chaser-style stunts. At least that's my intention.

To those at Christians in the Media who are concerned about the fact that I am attending tonight, I'll have you know that I will be on my best behaviour ...

How was it? Did you get to chat with him?

I was planning on writing a review today, but I didn't get around to it. In short, it was very good. Simple message, yet very effective and effectively delivered. I could have easily imagined the message being positively received even in my more liberal church community. Might write a bit about it tomorrow if I get a chance.

As for chatting with the Archbishop himself, I could have taken up a few minutes of his time if I so desired, but chose not to. I guess I'm weary about being a person who compulsively must speak with high profile people merely for the expectation that some of their greatness will rub off on you. Besides, I want the first time I speak with the Archbishop to be because he has summoned me personally :)
