Swedish Consecration

I note the report on Sweden’s Local news-site that bishops from England and Ireland are boycotting the consecration of the next Bishop of Stockholm.

(Tip of the biretta to Fr Madpriest).

Does anyone know which Scottish bishop is going? We are usually quite good at turning up to things in Sweden.

New Lesbian Bishop

Looks like the world is about to welcome its first bishop in a mainstream denomination who happens to be a lesbian. There has just been an election in the Church of Sweden which has resulted in the election of Eva Brunne (who is in a registered partnership) to the Diocese of Stockholm.

Congratulations to Eva. No doubt prayers are in order for her and her partner and their son.

The Scottish Episcopal Church is in full communion with the Church of Sweden thanks to the Porvoo agreement.
