What are Canadian Anglicans doing to avoid subcelestial hellfire?

Filed under: Anglican Church of Canada — David Jenkins @ 7:30 pm

Something really stupid:

Hundreds of churches to join bell-ringing campaign Sunday.

WHO: More than 250 of KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives’ member churches and local committees from coast to coast to coast.

WHAT: Church bells will toll 350 times either at 3PM or immediately following morning worship.

Where churches do not have bells, they will gather outside and bang pots, clang cowbells, beat drums and whatever else will make a holy noise to get the attention of world leaders.

Of course, there is a primitive attraction in the idea of banging pots together when you want to make a protest; I know I am taking some saucepans to the Anglican General Synod 2010.

  1. Just the thing to irritate the neighbours and have them seek a ban on bell ringing. Or worse.
