Preached by Bishop Stephen at the annual Charter service in St Thomas’, Salisbury on Sunday 5 March 2023
"Dressing up as a bishop beats most other theatrical performances. What colour mitre; hat on or hat off; surrender stick or retake it; have you forgot your pectoral cross yet again, the list goes on and on and wherever you go the rules are slightly different and no one really knows what they are anyway."
Bishop Stephen spoke of the Peace Pilgrimage to South Sudan, by Pope Francis, Archbishop Justin and the Moderator of the Church of Scotland Dr Ian Greenshields, which was underway while synod met. He said: “My contacts with both Archbishops of the Sudans continues to be frank, honest and committed to on-going partnership, recognising that especially for their people, there really are bigger issues at stake.
