New Flying Bishops for Church of England

Two new “flying bishops” have been appointed in the Church of England. I rejoice that one of them is Jonathan Baker, Principal of Pusey House, to become the Bishop of Ebbsfleet.

Pusey House under Fr. Baker was a haven for me back in 2007. I particularly remember delightful conversations he led over breakfast with his sharp, dry, and, yes, mischievous wit. If there is a downside to this announcement, it is that perhaps he will need to resign as Principal, but I do not know whether that is the case.

Forward in Faith is monitoring this news and response to it here.
