"Beloved in Christ Jesus: Greetings in the name of our Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Our world continues to be rocked by crises. Hard on the heels of the Covid -19 pandemic, which continues to cause massive disruption to social and economic life around the world, the appalling death of George Floyd has sent shock waves around the world. Despite the disorder it has triggered, his murder has rightly led to deep heart searching and a new awareness amongst Christians of the evil of racism in denying a person’s fundamental identity as made in the image of God."

For the media, what makes the Anglican Church, or to be more precise, the Anglican Communion, newsworthy is its potential for schism and we cannot dismiss this as mere sensationalism. Journalists may not always have a strong theological grasp, but most of those I have dealt with over the past twenty years have had high standards of reporting and always a strong instinct for the real human dynamics at work behind the spin.

Today, the 3rd of July, we are commemorating St Thomas, the Apostle. Thomas gets a bad press: he is widely known as ‘doubting Thomas’ and in the Fourth Gospel he is portrayed as someone who makes awkward remarks and asks difficult questions. Thus, when Jesus decides to go to Mary and Martha, after Lazarus death, he says pessimistically to the other disciples, “let us also go that we may die with him” (John 11:16). During the Farewell Discourses, he interrupts Jesus to say that the disciples do not know where he is going so how can they know the way (14:5) and in the reading for today, he refuses point blank to accept the testimony of the other Apostles that they had seen the Risen Lord unless his stringent conditions of touching and thrusting are met (20:24-29).
