Sounds like they are recieving a treasure.You can view a video of him here. He’s been wrestling with how to fit the mitre over his dreadlocks!http://www.urbanvision.org.nz/As someone involved in Anglican and ecumenical New-monastic/new intentional communities in Boston and now Omaha, I’m very encouraged by this. I was blessed to work with the Outdoor Church of Cambridge, MA, during Divinity School, an ecumenical project that is part of the Anglican Ecclesia Ministries network born out of Boston’s Cathedral and now in many cities around the country – meeting people “where they are” to claim the presence of Christ among them, rather than “preaching at” or “fixing.” It sounds like New Zealand has a powerful voice for the riches of living and serving among the “last, lost and least” in Jesus’ name.

The only problem will occur if Bishop Duckworth removes his dreadlocks. At that point, a new mitre will have to be constructed.

Justin Duckworth replaces Bishop Tom Brown who recently retired after 14 years.In announcing the appointment on April 29, Archbishop David Moxon pointed to Duckworth’s lifestyle, Christian discipleship and mission, citing more than 20 years of mission to street people and those on the margins. “I am confident that his election will challenge, invigorate and grace the church with a deep sense of the breadth and height and depth of the love of God,” Moxon said.While Duckworth said he feels “humbled, privileged – and terrified,” he believes the Anglican Church has huge potential for change. “I think the Anglican Church is doing amazing stuff, and is a total treasure. But it’s a treasure that needs to be dusted off. God wants his people to go on a journey – and if we have the courage, he’ll be faithful to equip and sustain us,” he said.An Anglican for just six years, Duckworth and his wife Jenny founded Urban Vision in 1996, a housing ministry in which young Christians live alongside street people. In 2008, Urban Vision became an Anglican missionary order.The couple then pioneered Ngatiawa, a lay contemporary monastery which welcomes those who are struggling, seeking prayerful retreat or a missional lifestyle. While colleagues welcomed the somewhat unexpected appointment, Duckworth acknowledged concerns that he doesn’t look like a bishop.“One of the big points of dialogue is ‘how will the mitre fit over my dreadlocks?’” he said.
