Fr. Gary Hill and his wife were friends and fellow parishioners of my best friends 30+ years ago (I seem to remember helping them move apartments in Houston) and may be one of my godson’s other godparents.  He was also my assigned guide on a visit to Nashota House in 1985, which is probably the last time I saw him.  He was a good man back then, orthodox in his theology with a charismatic bent. 

Of course, that was a long time ago.

Michell is in two simultaneous bishop processes?  Coadj for Texas and Suff for Dallas?

The Suffragan election in Dallas is tomorrow.  Won’t be simultaneous for long.

My money is on Dena Harrison.  Doyle, IMHO, does not have enough years in the ordained ministry to warrant being a diocesan bishop of a diocese of this size nor does he have much experience in the parish.

Here’s a weird question.  I notice that Dena Harrison is 61 years old—does that mean that if elected she would only serve at the maximum 11 years [mandatory retirement age 72]?

[PS: I mean no reflection at all on the abilities of those who are in their sixties.  This is a clarifying question.]

Sarah, this is my take for what it’s worth.  Wimberly was for all intents and purposes considered as an interim bishop because there was no person in the diocese who was ready to take the reigns from Payne once he retired.  Note that not one single one of the candidates who are priests come from cardinal parishes.  Thus their ability to make such a jump from running a congregation of medium to perhaps slightly larger in size to running a diocese as big, as corporate, and as spread out as Texas is questionable.  I think Dena is the best bet but only because I think the Diocese of Texas is going to be forced to go through another interim period before a longer term leader can be elected.  If I still lived in the Diocese of Texas (long time ago), I would hope that they would use that interim time to raise such a leader.
