From the Bishop-elect, Revd Dr Mark Short

Dear friends in Christ,

I am honoured and humbled by God’s call to serve you as the Anglican Bishop of Canberra and Goulburn.

Monica and I give thanks to God for your partnership in the gospel and your commitment to living out the way of Jesus in your churches, communities, schools and workplaces. We are especially grateful for the care shown to us in recent months by Bishop Trevor Edwards, the Episcopal Election Nominations Committee, our support team and for the members of Synod who set aside time to read, pray, discuss and discern God's will together.

Our family has very special memories of time already spent in the Diocese and we look forward to joining you again in due course. These are exciting days to engage in God’s mission and we invite you to pray with us in these words from Romans 15:5-6: May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give us the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice we may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Christ,

Mark Short
