You Read It Here First...

Crusty Old Dean could not help but notice that he happened to suggest precisely this here.

Crusty Old Dean could not help but notice that he happened to suggest precisely this here. From Episcopal Cafe:

"We don't have much by way of details yet, but scuttlebutt from the House of Bishops suggests that it may be worth discussing whether the Episcopal Church would be better served if General Convention abolished the Houses of Bishops and Deputies and met unicamerally."

Read the post in its entirety here.

As I noted, and which Jim Naughton also suggests, if considered, such a reform in polity must needs take into account other elements as well. I'd go into them, but you can get my opinion by clicking on the link above.

  1. Um, I suggested unicameral back before Crusty Old Dean was a glimmer in the blogosphere. For this, I received (no kidding) hate mail. I'm glad your structural reform posts have been better received. Perhaps this is because 7WD paved the way.

    I'm still mulling over a plan to make you a nemesis. This post increases the odds.

  2. I think another good option is to go the other way. Tricameral.

  3. Perhaps we should join forces, like Gandalf and Saruman should have.

  4. Hmm. An interesting choice. Join rather than quarrel. It seems so...unepiscopalian.
