A new job for our friend Giles Fraser!

This just in, via press release and posted at Episcopal Cafe: news about a new position for our friend Giles Fraser -- erstwhile Vicar of Putney, prolific writer and prophetic preacher. (Pictured here at a reception in his honor during his visit to All Saints Church in 2007.)

The Revd Dr Giles Fraser, currently Vicar of Putney in the Diocese of Southwark, is to be the next Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral.

As Canon Chancellor, Dr Fraser will fulfil the role of Residentiary canon overseeing the work of the St Paul’s Institute for ethics, and its ambitious, outward-facing programme. He will play a full part in the life of the cathedral and will contribute to its overall mission as a place of prayer, pilgrimage and debate.

Couldn't happen to a better bloke! Blessings, Mazel Tov and Huzzah!

And he can go straight from this job to be a proper bishop without the drag of a suffragan apprenticeship.

I'm so glad we've been able to help him.
