Anglican Bishop of Wellington Justin Duckworth: 'It's not hard to go and meet your neighbour'

From New Zealand-

Justin Duckworth is a bishop without a bible. The leader of Wellington's Anglican Church uses a smartphone app instead.

But before God's word went digital, Duckworth owned a treasured tome, inscribed with years of musings of a young theology student on a path to ordination.

Decades ago, a light fingered youth uplifted the bag in which Duckworth had stashed his Good Book. The thief biffed the lot in the Hutt River. Duckworth chuckles at the memory.

"They had no idea of the value. They just threw it away to get rid of it. But for me it was like, "You've got to be kidding me. Couldn't you have just left it, or put it somewhere else?'"
