Reputation and respect—4 March

Version 3

Today we offer three new opinion pieces to add to the three already up.

Response to the letter from Blackburn by Jeremy Clines looks at what comfort we receive in Sheffield from the letter signed by 32 clergy, who are female, from Blackburn Diocese and what is different.

In What’s at stake here? Ian Owers speaks of how this issue goes beyond matters of gender to matters of the Church of England’s mission, reputation and public respect.

Nick Jowett offers his view on why he believes he and others believe that the nomination is unsafe.
