From Beijing to London

Back from a quick but pretty un-bloggable trip to Beijing. However I did get straight from the plane on Sunday to the South Cathedral - arriving in the middle of the sermon alas but at least in time to sing the Anthems where it was helpful to have a second Tenor.

Christians in Beijing, or at least my friends, appear in good heart. It's interesting that the Pope and President Xi Jinping are both in the US at present. It would be amazing if they met but I fear not on this occasion.

Great views of London as we came in - and I had to go straight to a dinner.

The realignment around China and of China is probably the major fact of the first part of the 21st Century. We shall see what happens.
