Plough the fields and scatter?
In an e-mail received here this morning, I learned from a friend in Kent that a local developer has bought a large paddock close to her house on which, she says, he intends to have built an evangelical church. That ground be ploughed to rid it of all life is, apparently, a prerequisite condition of building. If this is true; that in order to raise a building in which the creator of all life can be worshipped it is necessary to have all life destroyed, does, it seems to me and to say the least of it sound like something of an extraordinary paradox!
