    Time of Year
     
    Missed the opportunity this evening to hear The Bishop of Jerusalem address a Liverpool audience on the question, Israel and Palestine - Is Peace Possible? Instead I found myself with a rare two hours in which I collapsed in front of two episodes of Friends and a documentary about the making of The Vicar of Dibley which brought tears to my eyes. I'm now having to excuse myself this indolence. I put it down to (a) grief exhaustion - these weeks around Christmas have brought about as much as anyone can cope with; (b) my suspicion that I knew the answer the Bishop would give to his own question - the answer we expect bishops to give (and hope they will, being the custodians of a mad but beautiful faith); and (c) the time of year... it's dark and cold out there.
