I have been to Wells Cathedral, for the installation of Peter Hancock as the new Bishop of Bath and Wells. It is funny to reflect on the terminology used at such occasions:

Some get installed, but not because they are a dishwasher.

Some get licensed, but not because they are currently illegal.

Some get translated, but not because nobody understands them.

Some get collated, but not because they are out of order presently.

Some get inducted, but not because they are pregnant with ideas.

But I like the idea of a bishop as chief server, edgy if not borderline illegal, fully understood, packed with ideas and putting everything in order.

Go Bishop Peter.
