The Archdruid predicts the next Archbishop

The Archdruid predicts a riot - sorry that's a song title - she brilliantly predicts all the qualities likely to be found in the next Archbishop of Canterbury(enjoy!)
I thought the last quality on the list was a bit radical by the way... It is also worth noting that the next ABC will, of course, be a man. If it is Sentamu, given his age, that would give us eight years maximum before the next shortlist for ABC. Surely, once we have women bishops, the Crown Nominations Commission will have to include a woman as well as a man in the names for consideration? It's just a thought - but then that is something else for everyone to squabble over next time...


  1. You'd have thought I'd be used to it by now, but I find it increasingly difficult to get my head round the fact that no women are ever considered when a bishopric becomes vacant. Is it something to do with the 'pric(k)' in the word?!

    I really think the Church has no idea how it looks to outsiders. Except, with our being a national Church, there are no outsiders. We're supposed to be there for everybody, not an esoteric clique with weird ideas and prejudices.

  2. Goodness, I'd never thought of the word that way. The Church seems weird and esoteric? I won't have it said! After all, we're likely to have women bishops within - oh- at least fifteen years time if we go on this way.;)
