    Good skins
    Wine theme continues from yesterday. Today town is full of 'charismatic Anglican' church people at The Adelphi for the National Church Leaders' Conference 2003. Organised by 'New Wine', "this conference is always a significant time in the lives of those who attend," their website says. "It's a time to meet other church leaders, receive encouragement and be re-envisioned."

    The Adelphi is a temple to former commercial glories, now faded and eclipsed by shining new hotels on the city's prestigious waterfront. But let's hope that on their two-day stay there, these good folk get all they came for. I popped in for a Ridley Hall reunion. Seemed like half the class of 2000 were on this conference. New Wine ain't my cup of tea, but cappuccino with some valued old college people was just right for a midweek afternoon. I don't think it re-envisioned me but our hour round a table at next-door Caesar's Palace will be a highlight of the week.
