Stay Tuned

The long-awaited announcement of a new Archbishop of Canterbury will, apparently, be awaited longer.

The complicated process described for example in The Living Church has yet to end up with an acceptable candidate. My personal favorite and the only bishop I actually know, the Bishop of London, is apparently no longer in the running; he would have been only a caretaker archbishop anyway, as he is fairly close to the mandatory retirement age. The Archbishop of York, the early favorite seems to be blocked because of his controversial positions and management style. More on this fascinating selection can be found in the excellent Thinking Anglicans website; if you are interesting in gambling, there are many British bookmakers who will take your bet.

Meanwhile, stay tuned. —J. Douglas Ousley
