The Saga of Deborah Pitt Continues

Evidently the Bishop of Durham, N.T. Wright, isn’t happy with Dr. Deborah Pitt’s revelation of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s letters to her concerning committed homosexual relationships, as she has responded in Anglican Samizdat (also here as well.)

It has given me great pain to be doing this, to even care about these things. Do you think there are not a hundred other things I would rather be doing than writing these sorts of letters?! But I care most about God’s word and the authenticity of the Gospel. I have complete agreement with your desire ‘to obey God’s call to take the gospel to the whole world‘ and I wish you and your fellow bishops every God-given success in so doing. God will bring good out of all this, I believe. If I didn‘t believe this I would not have done what I did. I pray for Dr. Williams and all of you in your responsibilities. I  have my personal opinions about Dr. Williams’ position, but my greatest wish is for the best for the Anglican communion.

I’ve had an excellent dialogue with Dr. Pitt, which you can read here, here and here (where I detail my own position on the value of committed relationships.)

The tag line for my series of novels is “One Woman’s Purpose Changes History,” and that seems to be what is going on here.
