The Church of England - - News -

The Bishop of Sher­wood, the Rt Rev Tony Porter, is pic­tured with the Arch­bishop of York, Dr John Sen­tamu, dur­ing a re­treat in Lind­is­farne. They had gath­ered on the is­land with other Bish­ops to pray and plan for the “re-evan­ge­li­sa­tion of the North” and Bishop Tony de­scribed his stay as “one of the best 48 hours in my life as a Bishop”. He had taken his lat­est book, Seed Scat­ter­ing, which ex­plores ways of shar­ing the Chris­tian Gospel. Bishop Tony has spo­ken to newly con­se­crated bish­ops about Seed Scat­ter­ing in their own dio­ce­ses and, along with Lu­cille, his wife, has vis­ited 20 parishes in the dio­cese to talk about evan­ge­lism.
