I had such a strange dream last night. It must have come from watching too much Pop Idol. I dreamed that I was in the final of a sermon competition just like Pop Idol. The thing was, it was taking place in Iceland. And several times during the night I woke up having just, in the dream, worked out a complicated and very funny joke in Icelandic which I then could not make any sense of o­n waking.

In case anyone was wondering how Bishops are elected in the Scottish Episcopal Church, it is almost the same process as Pop Idol. I'm going to try to get the synod to style the elections Pope Idol.
