Where next?

In its relentless desire to push the envelope, the CofE (aka WOKEChurch) has finally appointed its first black female bishop. Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin (why the ‘_’?) has been waiting in the wings for some time. In an institution which prides itself on inclusivity, the delay seems unconscionable.

But the question now must be: what next? To keep up the momentum of novelty there is much to be done. The first partnered gay woman bishop? The first black partnered gay woman bishop? The first transgendered bishop? The first black transgendered bishop? And when those are achieved, where?

Nothing is certain. Except that whatever it is, the Episcopal Church of the United States will have got there first.
