Building Jerusalem

As a leader of the London-New York diocesan link program, I recently spent a busy five days in London. The seminar for New York clergy included luncheon with the Bishop of London (preacher at the royal wedding), dinner with the Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral, and a meeting with the Dean of Westminster Abbey (who presided at the royal wedding.) We also were given a private tour of the Tower of London by the Chaplain, dinner at Lambeth Palace, drinks at the House of Commons, and visits to a number of London parish churches, including St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

Once again, I was impressed by the intelligence and commitment of the city clergy and their leaders and also by their great interest in—and kindness toward—their fellow Anglicans in the United States. —J. Douglas Ousley
