a clergyman may be apparently as useless as a cat, but he is also as fascinating, for there must be some strange reason for his existence (GK Chesterton): one retired Anglican septuagenarian clergyman's THOUghts, discOverings, readings, scribbLes, wOndeRings and dooDles exploring that strange reason

The 5 Solas (see here) have been on my mind lately:
Glory to God alone
Some Anglicans have added and are adding to this. For example, Scripture's primary authority is now accepted, or not, according to "enlightened" cultural "advances" and experience. If Scriptural standards of behaviour do not seem to make sense in our present situation, then it must not be true or authoritative. Human intellect has become the ultimate authority.
…well…you know. The Way, the Truth and the Life. Unique. Without exception. Absolute. Plus nothing and no one. Alone.
What is needed to keep the lights on, the salt shakers full and the engines turning in this ship.
