  Robert Gray: First Bishop of Cape Town   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The Bishop of Bristol was a man of character and courage; he had gone calmly to service in the cathedral while the rioters of 1831 were in possession of the city, and a few hours later his palace was burned to the ground.
But before the Bishop died the Society of St. John the Evangelist, Cowley, had given promise of stability, under its founder Father Benson, and the Bishop was in correspondence with Father Benson during the last year of his life, in the hope that the Fathers might come to South Africa.
Bishop Gray's assertion of the Church's independence and of her inherent powers encouraged all in England who were combining to resist the intrusion of the civil power into the spiritual affairs of the Church.

 Bishop Thomas F. Hendricken and the French Canadians   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Bishop Francis P. Keough, D.D., elevated to archbishop of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
In January, 1873, Bishop Hendricken acceded to the request of French Canadians in Arctic, a mill village in Warwick, for a priest and a parish of their own by sending Father Henry Spruyt, a Belgian priest of Flemish descent, to organize a parish dedicated to St. John the Baptist.
Bishop Hendricken would have preferred to send them a French-Canadian pastor rather than the Irish priests but he did not have one who had the ability to deal with the complicated financial situation Father Bedard had left behind, and who could be trusted not to continue the dubious administrative practices Father Bedard had instituted.

 The Living Church Foundation
Bishop Andrew D. Smith’s offer of an olive branch to the members of Christ and the Epiphany, East Haven, one of six Connecticut parishes that have rebuffed his Episcopal authority, had no takers on July 24, the parish's rector, the Rev. Gilbert V. Wilkes, told The Living Church.
Bishop Smith cited his visit to the parish as an example of his good faith adherence to the House of Bishops’ Delegated Episcopal Pastoral Oversight (DEPO) guidelines in a July 28 letter to nine bishops who objected to his conduct over the discipline of the Rev. Mark Hansen, rector of St John’s, Bristol.
Bishop Smith wrote that “in the spirit of ‘Caring for All the Churches’,” he had accepted an invitation from Fr.

For example, as the general advice of the House of Bishops (downloadable from www.cofe.anglican.org/news/pr5605.html) states, we must not collude with the fashionable tendency to consider every relationship as sexual in character.
The legislation - which the Bishops of the Church of England actively supported and he seems to be determined to try and justify - explixitly excludes unmarried friends who are of a different gender.
No matter what the bishop has to say and how he spins it, sex is indeed a part of the civil partnership.

 Joseph Butler [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
He does not doubt the point that scripture was written in terms properly applicable to a previous state of society, but he has little sense of the canonical books themselves being redactions of a multitude of oral and literary traditions and sources.
In the six sermons preserved from the years he served as the Bishop of Bristol, Butler defends the moral nature of various philanthropic and political institutions of his day, and in his Charge to the Clergy at Durham, he presents a concise rationale for the Church.

[The Three Crowns (Diocesan News from Bristol to Swindon)] The Anglican Bishop of Bristol has been at the forefront of leading the Church of England to the brink of an historic pact with the Methodist Church.
The three-year formal conversations were co-chaired by Bishop Barry Rogerson, Bishop of Bristol, and the Revd John Taylor, Chairman of the Liverpool Methodist District.
Stumbling blocks still to be negotiated include the Anglicans’ role as the established Church; the absence of female bishops in the Anglican Church, while the Methodists insist that all appointments must be open to all; and Communion protocol, in which the use of alcoholic wine is just one issue.

Bristol, being the lowest paid of all bishoprics, was where a new bishop usually started.
The Reform movement of the 1830's and its aftermath have remedied this situation.) However, George II had been impressed with him earlier, and in 1746 he was called back to court and the next year offered the post of Archbishop of Canterbury.
He refused the post, but in 1750 he became Bishop of Durham (in the north of England, near the Scottish border, and well known even then as having a tradition of bishops whose speeches and writings attract public attention).
