    Committees of Hope
    Blogged on Mayday, aptly enough, about getting Jim Hart on the web. This maverick historian, energetic champion of the poor, prophet not welcome in diocesan offices, has produced many writings which need exposure, because we all need to feel their rage, be purified through their fire. Well, step one achieved today as, with Jim's permission, I reproduce here his piece, Committees of Hope. Which, like the Wibbers etc, is great Christian satire. Mocks the way that toothless Church structures suck the life out of our involvement with the poor. As a member of the bishop's Urban Priority Panel I read this again to be challenged and cleansed.
