That didn't take long. Meet Michael Barlowe, candidate for Episcopal Bishop of Newark:
I graduated from Harvard College, the General Theological Seminary, and CDSP, where I received a doctorate focused on church planting and evangelism to young adults. Deputy to four General Conventions, I chaired the Standing Commission on National Concerns, and have been a childrens advocate, editor of the Ecumenical Bulletin, seminary tutor, and retreat leader. Before ordination, I worked on Wall Street at Chase Manhattan Bank. Paul Burrows has been my partner for 24 years. Paul is Rector of Church of the Advent in San Francisco, a spiritual director, Benedictine oblate, and naturalized U.S. citizen.
Considering that it's Newark, I think Mike just took an early lead. I find it tough to believe that the relevant Standing Committees and bishops with jurisdiction will come to the conclusion that Mike's "manner of life presents a challenge to the wider church and will lead to further strains on communion." But I've been wrong before.
