The Bishop of Doncaster's blog post from Argentina today

After an intense, busy but fascinating few days in Argentina, I’ve finally found space to write my first blog update, so here goes.

After recovering from the 13 hour flight we spent the first full day learning about the history of Argentina, the present financial and political climate, and the Anglican Church. There will be much to share about the political and financial situation and its impact on daily life when I return. Suffice to say there’s much anxiety and fear about levels of crime and violence. But the people of Argentina are resilient and optimistic and I experienced that in the people I have met.

90% of population still have some vestiges of faith, enough not to abandon it.

Read it all.

    I bridle at that phrase ‘90% of the population have some vestiges of faith’. How patronising. For a recent and more generous view of Christian faith in Argentina, both RC and the Anglican Cathedral in Buenos Aires, see the Ship of Fools website:

    #1 Indeed, Fr Tee – how fortunate the Argentines are to have suffragan bishop Burrows sweeping in to address their meetings on the great white bird from the skies.
