Here are some names:
"Three out of four of our last Archbishops have served on the faculty of Moore College prior to taking office, which also provides added advantages, such as already knowing the next generation of clergy very well, and having a good bird’s eye view of Sydney’s congregations. Any list of potential candidates should have representatives from the Moore College faculty on it. Whatever their own thoughts about this matter, men such as Mark Thompson, Bill Salier, Andrew Shead and Archie Poulos deserve serious consideration."
Here is a 'pull the other leg' moment for those who know the power of party politics in the Sydney Diocesan Synod:
"Archbishops of Sydney do not appoint their successors. The next Archbishop must be freely chosen by those who will sit under his Episcopal oversight. This election also needs to be a grass-roots movement, as the members of Synod each exercise their own reflection upon the theological requirements for the office, and then vote for the man who holds most promise of bringing that theological leadership to the office."
The whole article in the Australian Church Record is a thoughtful, even inspiring read. It has the feel, frankly, of a Diocese without an obvious successor in mind, which is a little paradoxical when the case is being made for "Made in Sydney" need only apply.
