Above: Three of the Bishops of Essex along with one on loan from Europe gather after an ordination service in Chelmsford this afternoon.
We’ve been up to Chelmsford during the day for a spot of ordination, which was lovely. Thought you might like to see what some of the bishops are wearing this season. Brightly coloured copes (like a cape but spelt differently) fastening across the front are quite the thing it appears. Hats are good – but it’s ok for the height to vary.
The final final deadline for the book is now tomorrow – I’ll be physically taking the disk and printouts into London so I have the absolute maximum of faffling time up until the last minute.
I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel, though it is temporaily hidden under a bushel.
