The Anglican Church (Church of Ireland) will meet on January 7th to elect
a successor to Robin Eames who retires effectively as and from December
The favourite at present to succeed him is Archbishop of Dublin, John Neill but there seems as if there well yet will be issues surrounding his appointment according to reports which have come our way. Seemingly, the separation of Church and State applies as much to this Church as it does to the Catholic Church in Ireland.
Some of the Northern bishops of the Anglican Communion are not too impressed with Neill's lack of pastoral empathy towards the northern situation and feel he may be too indifferent to what they consider their special situation!!!
However, overall, Neill is a remarkable man in many ways and it is his spirituality, compassion and theology which seems to be directing him towards the See of Armagh...its like a mini Vatican all over again....oh the joys how will we cope at all?
