Stories and blogs during January & February
Freedom of religious expression in DenmarkBishop Robert has expressed concerns regarding a new draft law in Denmark that could require translation into Danish of addresses and sermons delivered by religious leaders.

Read more here >>Ecumenism of the CrossBishop David wrote this blog during the Week of Prayer for Christan Unity following a tragedy in a building belonging to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid.

“A tragic on Wednesday afternoon this week killed at least 4 persons in buildings belonging to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Madrid parish of the Virgen de la Paloma in the heart of the Spanish capital. One priest was among those who died. The building was close to a school, where, due to the snow, the children were not in the playground, or else there would likely have been further tragic deaths and injuries. Reader Celia Paterson who serves in St George’s Madrid, knows some of the teachers and LaSalle Brothers at the school, for she has trained them in Godly Play courses. Celia has been in contact with them. “

We often think of Lent as a time of fasting and penance; self-denial and “giving something up.” The season to abstain from pleasure as a valuable means of self-discipline and strengthening inner will.
Yet the greater purpose of Lent is to offer something more nourishing and life-giving!  That’s why St Alban’s in Denmark is inviting you to a “Fast Food” diet.  
Sizzling with Scripture, laden with goodness, wholesome and fresh – there’s something to tempt every palate.
The “Menu” changes weekly:  Endings and Beginnings, Hunger and Thirst, Wilderness, Power, Trust and Sacrifice.  These themes help us reflect on the life of faith seasoned with Scripture and life experiences of many in the Diocese.  And they are fast!  Just 30 seconds to 2 minutes a-piece!
Bishop Robert opens the season’s delights and Bishop David serves the final helping with lots to savour, and digest in between!!  
Lent may be solemn but it need not be miserable.
