I was a member of St Clement’s when Gay Jennings was associate there. I was on the Vestry at the time. She is quite a gifted person, in terms of ability and likability. But her theology came straight out of EDS, and the Dio of Va would probably take a nosedive into full-blown revisionism if she were bishop.

The Very Reverend Johnston calls himself that as he is dean of the the northern Mississippi clericus or something like that. Not at a cathedral or a seminary as I’m accustomed to hearing. Nevertheless, he would be a step forward for the diocese of Virginia liturgically. Strong theology, confident leader, not a politician, I don’t think either side could claim him as their own. Now that Falls Church and Truro won’t have a say in the next bishop, I’d be surprised if any conservative-leaning person would be selected.

Bob Dannals is the conservative choice on this one, I should think. While Christ Church, Greenville is not ACN, I have the sense that it is ACN sympathetic. Corrections to this sense are welcomed.

Dear Elves and the pertinent other, My apologies for speculating. I thought that the matter I mentioned was public. Again, my sincere apologies to all.
Christ Church might have ACN elements in the congregation but that's quite different than saying the parish is ACN sympathetic. Here's a great story from 2003 in the Boston Globe describing Bob Dannals and Dorsey Henderson taking it from the left and the right.
