    Green week
    Green week coming up. Green because it's my first-ever Liverpool diocesan clergy conference; not sure how I'll cope stuck with 300 vicars for four days. And green because the theme of the conference comes from the bishop's explorations in environmental theology. So I used James Jones' primer Jesus and the Earth as the basis of my sermon today and promised to get back to them all on it next week.

    John Reader's Guardian Special report on the future of the city, No city limits, helped too. Sobering reading? Not entirely. His new book Cities looks a very good read. Pity he's not coming to the conference. But having Alastair McIntosh there should be stimulating enough. If I find a connected bolt-hole in Lancaster Uni I'll be blogging; if not, back soon.
