At this very moment the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway are electing their new bishop. There are three shortlisted candidates: Alison Peden, Gregor Duncan and John Applegate.
All morning the BBC has been broadcasting the fact that we may have our first woman bishop. It is always good for the SEC to get a bit of publicity. What surprised me, however, is that they got some bloke from England to comment on the woman bishop thing. They haven’t even got their act together yet so why comment on us?
