Delaware Announces Candidates for Bishop

The Diocese of Delaware has announced the slate of candidates in their search for the next bishop. The five priests, which include Rev. Canon Scott Gunn of Forward Movement and Lent Madness, will participate in three walkabouts around the diocese in June. A special convention will happen in July, and the eleventh bishop of Delaware will be consecrated in November.

Profiles of the candidates can be found here.

The ordination and consecration is December 9, 2017 not November.

Emma Waters

Connecticut would be thrilled to see its suffragan elected in Delaware.

Tom Sramek, Jr.

One bishop, four priests.

Thomas Ferguson

I find it startling that this summary misspells “canon” as “cannon” more even more significantly that it singles out and names one of the candidates to the exclusion of others. In the interests of fairness and objectivity it would seem best to mention them all or mention none of them and direct to the site.

I think it’s simply because one of the candidates is more widely known than the others.

If Samuel Seabury VI was one of the candidates, that certainly would be Big News.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
