New Primus elected in Scotland

The Scottish Episcopal Church have elected Rt Revd David Chillingworth, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane to serve as their new Primus (Primate).

“Raspberry Rabbit” has pictures and the full text of the new Primus’ remarks after his election. He says in part:

“We are entering a time of difficult decision-making as we respond to the new financial circumstances which face us as they face the whole of our society. Adding new things is relatively easy. Deciding what really matters when resources don’t stretch to cover everything is much more difficult. It tests decision-making and it tests relationships. That is the period which we are about to enter. Our prayer must be that this period will be for us a time of creative refining and pruning – from which will come more growth.”

Bishop David’s blog is here. He may be the first primate in the Anglican Communion who was actively blogging before his election.
