Vicar of Dibley to return as a woman bishop?

Vicar of Dibley to return as a woman bishop?

Dawn French, of the Vicar of Dibley, believes that writer Richard Curtis may have a new series in the works including a woman bishop:

“Richard agreed to a proper ending. After filming the wedding we had a lovely big party,” she said.

“As I was leaving the party the producer came up to me and said ‘You do realise that Richard has asked us to store the set?’ “So your guess is as good as mine. All I am saying is that Richard has got his eye on the ball.

“There are conversations, obviously, in the Anglican Church about female bishops – so watch this space!” Dawn revealed that when she filmed the famous moment where she falls into a deep puddle it was a cold mid-November day – so the crew used warm water to make it less unpleasant for her.

I’m so sorry to start with a complaint. In the past The Episcopal Cafe was my way of pausing and reading the various opinions on the lessons, a way to live Christ in today’s world. Sometimes I would have 2 or 3 days to catch up with, others just one. The new format for the Cafe is very confusing to me and I wonder if others feel the same. I liked being able to go back into the archives, and skip to The Lead…..just hoping you will give this thought

I’d watch this show—but just to be clear, the linked story is from October 2008 so not really news.

OMG! Get out the Skittles and Kit Kats! Dawn will be one bishop for the ages.

No, no, no, no, no, …yes!

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.
