Sign on the dotted line

Following on from my post on Common Tenure below, I have now sent my reply to my Bishop declining the offer of transferring from my current freehold office to the new system. There are various reasons for this, one being that signing such a contract would irrevocably change my relationship with not only the Church of England and my bishop, but also with these parishes, and I do not see any great advantage in going down that particular path.


  1. Good for you.No doubt your chances of preferment have suffered but your flock is very blessed

  2. Preferment? If it ain't happened by now it ain't gonna happen. I've never been interested in climbing the greasy pole, and anyway, I don't look good in either spats or purple!

  3. Someone was recently hawking a pair of spats on eBay, but seems that they're sold now. Maybe an admirer bought them for Bob Duncan.
