The search process will begin again. Not sure they will do much better.

I’ve mentioned that tomorrow the Episcopal Diocese of California (i. e. San Francisco) elects a new bishop.

What hasn’t gotten as much attention is that the Diocese of Tennessee will hold another ballot tomorrow in its bishop election. That election has been deadlocked because the laity have insisted on a strong orthodox bishop and nothing less while the more liberal clergy desire otherwise. Good for the laity! Don’t give in!

Obviously, both elections are matters for prayer.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar, Huber and newheart.

Voting (Convention issues-not for Bishop) in East Carolina ran the same.
