I’ve removed the link to the Bishop Bill story from this blog, as the page has lapsed.
At first glance, the fading of this episode into history could be seen to indicate a victory for the Temple Police, the anonymous dark force ultimately responsible for his removal.
It’s far from that of course.
The inclusive culture so solidly embedded into the Toowoomba Diocese by Bill Morris will long outlive the Temple Police.
Women will still routinely preach on Sunday in our parish.
TRAMS, the Toowoomba migrant centre, will continue to operate in support of refugees (many of them Sudanese) in Toowoomba and surrounds.
Kids with disabilities will continue to be supported through their sacramental programme by SPRED.
Churches as far away as Cunnamulla will continue to practice his compassionate approach to the most vulnerable in the diocese.
The Bill Morris legacy will endure.
