Yes, I am referring to our own diocesan Bishop! It is not only I who thinks that but some in the wider Church of England think that too.
Whenever there is a vacancy, our Bishop’s name comes up. For example, when the Bishop of London retired, our Bishop’s name came up. The same happened when ABY’s position became vacant and now the suggestion is that our Bishop should be the next Bishop of Winchester to clean up the mess that has been left behind!!!! I am so proud that our bishop is held is such high regard but it is not good news for me! I prefer to have our Bishop with us in our own diocese until they retire.
This wonderful Bishop of ours is very kind and caring. Someone who is firm and exercises authority but never arrogant. A person who prays and most importantly believes in the life, death and resurrection of Christ! I know that some clergy in the CofE don’t believe in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!!!! What are they doing in the Church??? I digress….
Our Bishop is a well learned individual who never shows off but can get grumpy when tired😂😂😂
We are very blessed and most privileged to have this individual in our lives and my only prayer is that our Bishop will remain in post for a very long time.
By the way, please don’t ask me which diocese I belong to as my cover might be blown if I were to divulge!!!!🤣🤣🤣
