    This is indeed good news for the ‘Blue Continent’!
    My hope and prayer is that our stream of the church ie Anglicanism, might find new culturally contextualised expressions under the oversight and encouragement of the two new Bishops, that will flow back into the fossilised Euro-centric parishes of our three tikanga church, ‘Down Under.’
