New Bishop of Oxford

At last we know who the next Bishop of Oxford is to be – John Pritchard, currently Suffragan Bishop of Jarrow. It has been a long wait for the announcement and the diocese I think was getting rather restive. I have not met John before. His giftings and passions seem to be, from what I gather by “Googling ” him and the list of his publications, in the area of pastoral and practical theology. A colleague here at All Saints has encountered him in action and speaks favourably of his inclusiveness. The signs are hopeful.
