David Rice, Provisional Bishop of San Joaquin in California’s Central Valley, has been elected Diocesan Bishop, though it took a canonical change to do it. The election marks a turning point in the diocese, riven by schism 10 years ago; they now feel strong and confident enough to have a bishop to call their own again. Rice, American-born, was formerly Bishop of Waiapu, New Zealand and the third of San Joaquin’s provisional bishops, after +Jerry Lamb and +Chet Talton. We rejoice with the diocese! (diocesan photo)
