Times are a-changing for our little community out here at Blogstead Episcopi. Our good friends and neighbours at No 1 are moving. So they are looking for a buyer with loads of liquid readies. We are looking for new community members. Like the SEC, we are into inclusiveness. At 50%, we are seriously overweight in bishops. So no more of them, please. But some diversity in gender, sexuality, race … would shorten the winter for us all. As with The Sound of Music and ‘I can do Anything’, we thought of auditions or the opportunity to make a short Powerpoint presentation on ‘What I could bring to Blogstead’ or ‘All I know about Continuous Aeration Plant septic tanks’
That’s true enough. But the process has to begin somewhere.
Thanks Kimberley. That’s kind. I do try but I don’t get out much. I think there are real issues here about us ‘finding a voice’ and we’re not there yet by a long way.
off topic, but before ‘Blogging Appreciation Day’ is over:
Thank you for being the bishop who blogs, for speaking bravely and engaging in discussion.
That’s less than the price of a two bedroomed terraced house in Donnycarney!
