Today's sermon, based on lectionary readings, contained several references to dates of historical events eg destruction of the temple. Each time a date was mentioned our minister used the wording 'in the Common Era' or alternatively 'before the Common Era'. Now I know these terms are the present politically correct way to refer to what we used to call BC and AD, but nevertheless it grated on me. In the context of Christian worship surely it not inappropriate to use the versions that relate to Christ? Or am I out of touch?
