BOC Conference at Mickfield

As one unable to attend the day in Mickfield having only recently joined the BOF forum, I was interested and encouraged to read how successful the day was, but more importantly that it was conducted in a spirit of open Christian fellowship.
As a priest in the Anglican Church, I would very much have liked to hear the talk on the priesthood, because there seems to be a growing confusion and fragmentation over what priesthood means within the Church of England.
I would value any comments about the role of the priest in the 'care of souls' within the Orthodox tradition and how that care is rooted in prayer in the life of the priest. Something that in my own tradition is often only given 'lip-service'.
I have recently completed in my own diocese a course on the leadership role of the clergy, which took much of its content from a business model and consequently, for me, lacked any spiritual depth or theological rigor.
