Let’s keep Glenn Davies for 12 years

by on August 7, 2013

Canterbury Community Church is very pleased to welcome Sydney’s new Anglican Archbishop, Glenn Davies.

We are blessed to have a leader of this calibre available to take up the post.

Glenn did not campaign for this office, nor did he need to. My impression talking with Glenn is that he did not relish the prospect of becoming Archbish. And that’s exactly the sort of man we want for the job. 

The campaigners for Glenn are to be commended also for running such a positive and ‘clean’ campaign. No election campaign will ever be spotless, but these guys have set a standard which I hope will be followed by future campaigners hoping to commend their dude to the Synod and diocese.

Rick Smith seems to be a man of integrity. It’s a pity that those campaigning for Rick probably undermined his position. Most people can’t easily distinguish between a campaign and the nominee it’s backing. The shenanigans that went on in his name likely tarnished Rick’s image. We are not suggesting Rick was involved in any way in all that.

Leaving the past behind, we look forward to Glenn’s leadership, and will be praying for him this Sunday in our gathering.

Is it too early to start calling for the compulsory retirement age of 70 to be revised to reflect 21st century realities? It’s time for 75. Let’s keep Glenn for 12 years.
