Thank-you for this great start to my Sunday morning as light dawns both literally and figuratively. And on the day we celebrate Corpus Christi too (yes, I know it should have been Thursday). I understood every word - the transparency of language allowed me easily to follow your 'seven commandments', which allows my brain to concentrate on checking that I follow them. Great!
For what it's worth, I agree with all that Mouse says. I suggest that this is at least partly because Mouse and I both treat social media as a means to an end, not an end in itself. We are pragmatists (though of course we operate at different levels - I would not presume to equate myself with Le souris des souris.) We could also, though, be likened to the bluff man of commonsense who says he does not need to know the molecular structure of the air he breathes in order to benefit from it. It's a perfectly defensible point of view, but for those also possessed of an insatiable curiosity it is not in itself satisfying. I echo Tennyson: “Come, my friends, 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die.” It is this desire to keep discovering new things that impels me to register for #cnmac11 and its offer of intellectual challenges (as well as the pleasure of meeting other seekers after truth).
Jonny, I loved this take on Corinthians. I hope you don't mind, but I have copied it to the discussion forum on the Anglican Communion at Lay Anglicana (http://www.layanglicana.org/showthread.php?100-What-is-going-on-in-the-Anglican-Communion&p=581#post581). It reminds me of that wonderful spiritual, 'Dem Bones'. Now hear the word of the Lord!
