Joe Wilhelm has a lovely observation tucked away in his “Top 10 Things You May Not Have Expected About GAFCON”
2. Bishops, bishops everywhere – but not a mitre to be seen. While Archbishops Welby and Wabukala wore their bishops’ mitres at a Sunday morning service before the conference began, the purple-shirted crowd has eschewed mitres and most other obvious episcopal accessories. Perhaps out of willingness to meet other bishops halfway, low-church Sydney bishops have been spotted wearing collars, a rare sight.
A fairly rare sight. But Joe doesn’t know the half of it. The real wonder of GAFCON was to see Sydney clergy in the same attire! 😉
