"You’re right. I am an atheist, but the Church does healing: and we need healing in this country.”
A ‘very senior politician’ responding to the Archbishop of Canterbury
The above quotation is drawn directly from Archbishop Justin’s address in York Minster on Sunday 7th July. That ‘very senior politician’ had come to see him 2-3 weeks previously, asking for the Church of England’s involvement in issues needing mediation and reconciliation. ++ Justin’s question was: ‘But why come to the Church? So far as I know, you don’t believe what we believe, what I believe”.
But of course you don’t have to believe in order to see the need for healing and reconciliation. You only have to see the tensions at all levels of society, for example over Brexit, evident each week in BBC’s Question Time. Meanwhile youth violence is endemic, and young people themselves are deeply challenged by mental health issues.
Internationally, the position is hardly any better: Donald Trump’s combative style has created strains right across the world: from the Mexican border to the Far East, and from the Straits of Hormuz to the UK embassy in Washington.
What has happened to the middle ground, where so few now feel at home? Please READ ON .. as we look at how generations of the future must learn from ++ Justin’s art of ‘disagreeing well’.

The main set of proposals are as follows:
