There’s been a couple of quite interesting posts by Bishops recently on the changing nature of the clergy in the Church of England, and I wanted to bookmark the links, as it can be horrendous finding these things again!

First is by Tim Thorton (Bishop of Truro) on Shaping Vicars – http://www.freshexpressions.org.uk/views/shaping-vicars.

Second is by Stephen Croft (Bishop of Sheffield) on Self-Supporting Ministry – http://bishopofsheffield.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/generosity-humility-liminality-new.html
