Celebration of the First Ordinations of Women as Priests in the Church of England

I'm afraid our celebrations will be a bit muted as our special guest, the first woman to be a bishop in the Church of England, is unexpectedly delayed.

So we'll just have a glass of sherry to pretend to be Anglicans, and give thanks that the upcoming generation of women priests - many of whom will be bishops one day - don't have such bad tastes in paisley clerical shirts as the first lot. Who deserve our thanks and congratulations regardless.

  1. 'chink' sherry glass 'cheers and blessings'. I guess the English woman appointed as a bishop in NZ doesn't quite count...
