Launde Abbey Reader Retreat

on the topic of Leadership from the ‘Second Chair’ -

A Reflection from Sandy Riley What!!! Subordinate!!!! What a hoohaa, this word caused the first evening. After a lot of debate on the negative side of the word and then the positives given in response, the weekend took on a different feeling.

My ‘takeaway’ as a newcomer to the Diocese was this. We, the laity, are the Diocese. It is the way of Anglicanism, we must

communicate this clearly and without any fear to everyone. No one should live in fear of their lead chair; that is not the way of

becomes a Parish Resource Centre teach us to communicate, collaborate and make clear the path that leads to your kingdom,

here on earth. Amen.
