As you know, I don’t usually do rapid news flash posts, but I've just had news which has made this woman priest very happy indeed. The Governing Body of the Church in Wales this afternoon voted overwhelmingly in favour of the ordination of women bishops. It was the amended Bill which was passed, with no constitutional changes now planned, but a code of practice for those who will find it hard to accept this development.
Wales now joins Scotland and Ireland in having opened the way for women bishops, though none have yet been elected. But one day it will happen (hopefully in my lifetime) and I’m so glad that the possibility is now there in the Church I love and have served for many years.
