At Yule save us from Saviours......




A saviour from saviours...We know now that fewer than a million people call themselves Anglicans and attend church regularly. It's time to recognise that all Faith, spirituality and belief is essentially a matter for the individual. We are a a community of faiths and non, a community of pantheists, penentheists, monotheists and polytheists, atheists and agnostics. Even our politics are matters of faith and mission...all is belief and there is no certainty but there s faith in possibility.

There is no need for a state church ; there is no need for bishops in the House of Lords. There is no need anymore for a monopoly of Christianity as Chaplins in hospitals and prisons. We need a ist of celebrants of all faiths and of none . We must recognise that we live in a secular society of multiple faiths it is time the institutions of the state recognised this. Faith is an individual matter. We can be equally good or bad with or without God; but we cannot work out our beliefs without thinking critically. We have a system that indoctrinated us , we need an approach and education system that opens up every institution, every thought and belief , every part of common sense to criticism, analysis and account. In the world of social media there are even more false beliefs than ever provided by organised religion. Work out you own salvation as all things decay and help free us all from Saviours..there are too many dead white men with beards and 'holy books'...
