Break bread together

It was good to read in The Church Times that the Bishop of the Australian diocese of Canberra & Goulburn has no problem with women bishops. He would not hesitate to consecrate a woman bishop “if our needs are such, and our finances are such, and if God raises up a person who has the appropriate gifts and talents and abilities, and also happens to be a female”. In his diocese, 40 per cent of clerics are women. He is “orthodox” on sexuality but would not refuse homo­sexuals holy communion. “Anybody who names the name of Christ... is welcome at the communion table.”
