A free floating commentary on culture, politics, economics, and religion based on a passionate commitment to the truth and a desire graciously to refute that which is contrary to it….
"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."
--Titus 1:9, Revised Standard Version

Davies-Flindall has not always felt strongly in favour of same-sex blessings. She started "with the question" and soon associated advocating for this issue with her humanitarian work through the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund.
"I hear stories of people who feel deeply about a church they think of as their own, but don't feel accepted in it," she said. "People said 'I love this
church but I can't stay.' It made me understand that I need to look more seriously at the argument."
The issue is around same-sex blessings rather than same-sex marriage because when it first arose, the latter was not legal in Canada, Oulton said. Same-sex blessings involves the church blessing a civil union that was legalized elsewhere. The issue has affected many Protestant denominations, he said.
Oulton will not say if he is for or against same-sex blessings, only that the church should proceed "very carefully." Any movement needs broader consensus, he said.
"The push is very divisive at this stage of the game," he said. "My feeling is that we need to continue to have the conversation. It's trying to sort out the mind and will of God, which is complicated at the best of times."
He also felt that people were frustrated with the votes at General Synod.
"I don't think we did what we were asked to do at all," he said. "People were very frustrated. I really believe it's critically important we encourage diverse people with diverse viewpoints to stay at the table."
