I can't recall a Kiwi episcopal election where the names of the candidates and their profiles have been published. (I think we did have an election where the names were published ... help me readers ...).
So it is good to see a new if not newish direction in the forthcoming Waiapu election with this list of candidates and then the possibility of clicking on their names to look at their profiles.
In the nature of our smallness as a church I know all of the five candidates even though I live a long way from Waiapu (roughly, for overseas readers, the north-eastern corner of the North Island lying to the east of the northern-and-western leaning prong which is the Auckland diocese).
Note: I am going to feel my way as a moderator re any discussion which might take place here. My inclination is to accept discussion of any material published in their profiles but to reject any comments which are about their perceived viability as candidates. You can email friends in the electoral college with those kinds of comments!
