The recent appointment of the Rev Libby Lane as Bishop Suffragan of Stockport, the first ever woman bishop in the Church of England (CoE), will without doubt excite those who have pushed to have Women bishops in the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK).
This news in equal measure will irritate conservatives within the ACK who had clung to the robes of tradition as their excuse, now that the CoE 'mother church' has changed its long held position on women episcopacy. The import of this appointment is the springing of demands for the same action in the ACK by those who adjudged the moratoria on the women bishops concentration imposed by the house of Bishops and the provincial synod in October 2014 a blockade.
Speaking to the Soul: Alleluia! Alleluia!
