New bishops for England

The appointment of new bishops of Ebbsfleet and Richborough has been anounced today. The statement from Forward in Faith is here

"Forward in Faith is delighted to welcome the announcement made today that the next Bishop of Ebbsfleet is to be the Revd Dr Jonathan Baker ssc, Principal of Pusey House, Oxford and Secretary of Forward in Faith, and that the next Bishop of Richborough is to be the Revd Norman Banks ssc, Vicar of Walsingham, Houghton and Barsham, Rural Dean of Burnham and Walsingham and Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen."
Whatever our own views may be on the future and on the true theological and historical significance of the crisis facing traditional Anglo-Catholics, this news can only be welcomed by those now in the Church of England who seek to "hold and teach the catholic faith that comes to us from the apostles."

  1. O to be in England
    With trusty Rowan there,
    Not stuck here with Barry
    Who really doesn't care.
    Now he's asked Lord Harris
    to tell him what to do;
    And what will be the outcome?
    Deeper in the ***!
    (Apologies to Browning)
