Great day

The Rev Libby Lane is joined by female clergy after a service at York Minster, York.

Libby Lane became the Rt Rev Libby Lane, Bishop of Stockport, today in a ceremony at York Minster - and my friend from university, H-A, the Bishop from New Zealand - was there!  She's in this photo, far left, looking just as she did all those years ago.

It's quite an achievement for the Church of England to have got this far - and long may it continue!

In other news, the YFG has had a day resting, and taking her antibiotics.  I have had work to do, a visit from my tutor, and rearranged the garage this evening so that the man can get near the boiler in the morning to service it.  Fun.  Not.

I am about to break out my knitting and watch Silent Witness.  Feet up too.....

It is indeed a great day - and i hope the first of many such days.

Yes, what a great day, long overdue. Shame about the ongoing controversy around it & that there will be a prohibition on the next laying on of hands - leaves a sour taste. Having said that when I saw the laying on of hands on TV it did make me recall the old fashioned children's game "The Farmer's in his Den," at the point where they "all pat the bone!" Sorry , no disrespect intended here. Vee x
