Consecration


Tomorrow Pastor Jana becomes Bishop Jana, so I will be piling into a minibus for the trip to London for the occasion. Pastor Mark is driving: be afraid, be very afraid! I also the suspect that the congregation's phantom farter (who I think I may now have identified) will be travelling with us. Fruity!

It is something of a surprise to me that there has not been any media interest so far as I can see. I know the British media don't really concentrate on religion unless the story has some prurient content or is about Archbishop Rowan, (or ideally both) but I would have thought that the consecration of Britian's first woman Bishop would be an event worth mentioning even if she isn't C of E.
