Just announced is the news that Australia's first woman bishop - The Venerable Kay Goldsworthy - will be consecrated on May 22 in Perth! For more info see here.
Ok, so Perth is as far away from Sydney as L.A. is from New York (except in our case hardly anyone lives in between) - but the precedent's now been established, prayers have been answered, and by God's grace our church has taken a giant step forward in support of justice and equality.
Anyone near the Casa del Caliban tonight is welcome to drop around and join the celebration - let the champagne start flowing!
PS. The official press release from the Archbishop of Perth is here.
