Round-up from Twitter

  • 11:35 Regarding myself ruefully, as I need to relearn the lost art of getting up on mornings. #
  • 11:52 Time to leave comfy flat and earn a bit of £. #
  • 16:30 Observing many of my friends mourning someone of whom I had never heard, but was clearly well-loved. #
  • 16:36 @tree_and_leaf Walks and cups of tea of some sort are useful in these situations. And old Doctor Who stories. #
  • 16:49 @tree_and_leaf Doesn't everything where you are? *ducks* #
  • 17:16 It's entirely appropriate that a bishop requiring the use of force against one of his clergy should call for 'Souldiers'. #
  • 17:43 @tree_and_leaf No, near Reading, which was in Salisbury diocese then. The pre-Civil War incumbent had been restored, but had installed an #
  • 17:44 ...Anabaptist shoemaker as his new Curate. The Anabaptist had been thrown out of the Reading Anabaptist congregation for 'his wicked life'. #
  • 17:45 but the CofE rector was happy with him as long as he took all the services and allowed the rector to live off the income of the parish #
  • 17:46 without actually doing anything. The parishioners were not happy and called for the bishop, who was actually restraining the 'Souldiers' #
  • 17:46 from doing their worst, and instead relying on diplomacy from the JPs. #
  • 18:15 @tree_and_leaf I doubt, really, that it could have done anything else! #
