The Consecration of the Rt Rev’d Kevin Pearson as Bishop of Argyll & The Isles

Just back from a glorious two days in Oban (weather not glorious) for the consecration of my dear friend Bishop Kevin. Lots to report on the jaunt but no time yet as parish duties call. However, here are some photos to keep you going. (I’m afraid my new camera does not take good photos and they are not the best quality but you’ll get the gist.)

  1. Hi! Those are lovely photos, but if you don’t mind me beeing a bit cheeky I need to correct something…. Bishop Antje is in deed a bishop IN Sweden, but not the bishop OF Sweden. She is bishop in our southern-most diocese, the diocese of Lund…..we have 13 more bishops in Sweden 🙂

    All the best,

    • Thank you Petter for the correction. You are quite right. I didn’t have the details to hand.

      What a lovely Bishop she is too. And I think she enjoyed the ceilidh dancing as well.

    • That’s what happens when you try to post photos, print pew sheets, write sermons and organise things for tomorrow all at the same time. Oops. +Mark was the preacher – a very good preacher, as it happens.

  2. Ruth looking at you with those bishops, you fitted in so well, I thought to myself, what with Ruth’s calling to wear purple its only right you should be next… a bit disapointed +Kevin did not wear a kilt, Scotch Corner do a lovely one called ‘Pride of Scotland’ which is the right shades of purple…. I wear it for solo piping…. looks a treat..

  3. “Pride of Scotland” – away with you! There is a perfectly legitimate Scottish Episcopal clergy tartan he can wear, rather than some concoction made up for the benefit of clueless Americans:-)

  4. Ah! The other person is wearing a dress. My bad. I thought it was something out of the provost’s liturgical vestments wardrobe. I’m sure you’ll agree – an easy mistake to make.

  5. Thank you Ruth and others. What a wonderful feeling to have +Kevin as the new Bishop…. A fine man and fine priest. Martin [Shaw]
