Mary Magdelene – more

I don’t often link to sermons that are preached outside St Mary’s, but couldn’t resist linking to this sermon from the Very Rev June Osborne which was preached last week on the Feast of St Mary Magdalene. It is a great sermon dealing with some of the Mary Magdelene issues that we were thinking about here last week and also reflecting on the nature of the Episcopate in the Church of England at the moment. In the sermon, the apostolate of Mary M is interwoven with the apostolate of the new bishops of Stepney and Salisbury who were being consecrated at the service. And it is funny too.

Don’t forget, never forget, that the Church of England asks its bishops to be a focus of unity and in Scotland we don’t.
