    Tom and Chelsea: listening to the questions
     
    Excellent bit of national media last weekend, for a change, from our area. BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House had two local fifteen year olds Tom and Chelsea interviewing the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police, Bernard Hogan-Howe on policing in the area. The programme editors gave Tom and Chelsea plenty of time and they and Hogan-Howe treated the young people's questions with respect, so a decent, generous and authentic-sounding conversation ensued. I've spent this evening splicing it together with an Iona song, which I'll use to open a community prayer gathering on Saturday morning. Because I reckon that the best - perhaps the only truthful - form of prayer is listening.
