  3. Greetings from a member of the Episcopal Church in the U.S.A.! This was simply stunning. Please make something similar regarding the U.S. presidential race so we can momentarily forget how painful that process is, too! :-)

  9. I got this from colleagues in New Zealand and I'm sure colleagues in the Diocese of New York are going to make this viral after I've posted it. I watched it five minutes ago and I'm still laughing. Totally excellent.

  10. It took a lot of extra work to hide the options in You Tube that might have allowed someone to view this full screen, or get a proper URL for emailing.

    Somehow the poster magically found the time to do all that, but not the time to spell the word "province" correctly: "In a secret location somewhere in the Provice of Canterbury"

  15. Really funny, whoever came up with this deserves a medal!!! Not too bothered who gets the job in UK,, we have our own Archbishop to elect in the Republic of Ireland soon, that will probably be a bit of a scrum as well. Hope some brilliant mind comes up with as good a video clip as this one. Laughed for the first time today!!! Good luck with whoever takes over from my hero from Henry V111's era, Thomas Cranmer, at least the burning at the stake is now off the agenda!!!!!!
