Kim offers a robust response to the Archbishop’s lent book

It’s kind of depressing that there are still area of the church that are negative about fresh expressions of church and want to hold on to the parish system as the answer to everything. If it was we clearly wouldn’t need the energy that we do in mission! It’s even more depressing that the Archbishop’s lent book has such a take in it as by implication people will conclude that’s what the Archbishops support or endorse – hopefully they will make some kind of response to say other wise?
