SINCE THE ANNOUNCEMENT of my successor as the eighth
bishop of Maitland-Newcastle, Bishop-elect William Wright,
there has been a flurry of activity around his appointment and my
People have been very kind in their remarks, affirming my
leadership and offering good wishes for the future. Similar
positive comments have been made about the qualities the new
bishop will bring.
During my sixteen years in the Diocese I have come to appreciate
living in Newcastle and experiencing the support of many fine
people. Some have said to me on a number of occasions that
Newcastle is one of Australia's best kept secrets. They are right!
But there is another side to Newcastle and the Hunter which
causes concern to the outsider -- Novocastrians don't do "change"
very well! Despite responding well to the aftermath of the 1989
earthquake and the 1999 closure of BHP, some very effective
leaders and potentially beneficial development projects have
been cut off at the knees or, in the case of the development
projects, been abandoned altogether.
In recent years some of our fine leaders who have been hurt
by angry criticism commented that Newcastle is a tough and
unforgiving place. It's almost as if the "tall poppies" must be
toppled because they have become effective leaders.
This has an effect on Church-related matters too. There are
some parts of the diocese which not only resist change, but
angrily reject it. Efforts to plan for future contingencies can be
compromised by an unwillingness to consider other possibilities.
When the Tinkler Group assumed ownership of the Knights,
Mr Hilton Grugeon, a well known and influential member of our
community, ventured to say that this was a sign that Newcastle
was "growing up".
He could well be right -- I sincerely hope his prophecy will be
fulfilled because Newcastle and the Hunter promise much and
the potential is great. The only thing holding it back is self-doubt.
Your new bishop deserves your full support. Allow him to lead
you into a future full of promise where the Church can be a force
for good as it works within the community to bring about the
reign of God.
With my best wishes, prayerful remembrance, and deep gratitude
for your love and collaboration,
A future full of
Your new bishop
