Ruth Gledhill, intrepid reporter for the London Times, has written a fine comment on her interview with Bishop Elect Mary Glasspool. She begins by saying,
"Canon Mary Glasspool graciously consented to speak to me yesterday. Some clerics, when you speak to them on the phone, are so holy it is impossible to get a news story out of them. Others are so political that it is equally impossible, but for opposite reasons. The best, like Canon Glasspool, syncretise wisdom and innocence, making them compelling to listen to and a joy to interview. In today's material world, it still takes my breath away to encounter men and women like this, reminding me of why I love this job."
Sometimes Ruth Gledhill says things so gracious that it takes my breath away as well.
Meanwhile she also wrote, "... the word from the US is that this election is likely to go through."
I believe she is right.
