Canon 4 (Election of Bishops) Amendment passed at General Synod

Bishop Anne writes:

This afternoon, the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church passed the motion that Canon 4 (of the Election of Bishops to Vacant Sees) be revised and amended as necessary.

This motion began in the Synod of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney, was adopted by the Faith and Order Board, and then presented to General Synod by the Provincial Standing Committee.

I am very pleased that the whole church will be able to play a part in revising this canon.
