bishops come and go

Suffragan bishops never used to get this kind of national attention. The Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian and the Independent all reported on the appointment of a new Bishop of Reading. “He is a liberal Anglo-Catholic, and no less radical in his beliefs than Dr John” says Ruth Gledhill. “Anglican Mainstream, the evangelical group formed to campaign against Canon John, said it was “delighted” by the appointment” says Jonathan Petre.

Meanwhile in Australia, Peter Carnley has announced he is retiring in May 2005. Reports on ABC, in The Age, The Australian and also this commentary, and his hometown paper, The West Australian.
