The changing face of Anglican clergy



As another woman is appointed to a senior post in the Church of England the Bishop of Guildford, the Rt Revd Christopher Hill, said "Dean Gwilliams stood out from the rest"! 

No gold jewelry in evidence but the hair style must have afforded plenty of opportunity to demonstrate the unfading beauty of the inner self.

    There is alleged to be in the Diocese of Canterbury a lady priest who changes the colour of her hair according to the liturgical season. I am sure, Ancient Briton, that you will agree that this is a charming example of how the Tradition can develop in the most unexpected ways. Sadly, I have not been able to bring myself to check whether the rumour is correct as I am of a nervous disposition.

  4. From todays NT reading at Morning prayer:

    Do not adorn yourselves outwardly by braiding your hair, and by wearing gold ornaments or fine clothing; rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight.
