Comments: General Synod - November timetable

You might find Malcolm Grundy's recent book on Episcope inrteesting. He suggests that what clergy find difficult is to be not chosen/dismissed without knowing why. Our process which is akin to the American one probably leaves people feeling that they have been able to give account of themselves' in the process. But it is not completely transparent nor can it really be.And he records a comment I think from George Carey which notes that different appointment systems produce different kinds of bishop. He suggested that the American system and therefore probably the Scottish system tends not to produce mystics. Do you think there is any evidence that this might be true?
