First British woman bishop on horizon?

A woman priest has been named as one of the three nominees for the upcoming bishop’s election in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway in the Scottish Episcopal Church. The election is scheduled for the middle of January.

If Dr. Alison Peden were to be elected, she would be the first woman to serve as a bishop in a ecclesiastical province of the UK though not as part of the Church of England.
