"Our faith is always to be in motion rather than static, and no one goes alone on their spiritual journey; we are to travel together with others at every step."
Soon after his consecration, Bishop Stephen London appointed Canon Scott Sharman as Canon to the Ordinary for the Diocese of Edmonton. As Scott explains, "this mouthful of a title actually means something quite simple. Here ordinary is just another title for the bishop (from the Latin ordinarius), and a canon (from the Greek kanonikos) is someone who is particularly related and bound to someone or something else. A Canon to the Ordinary, therefore, is just a close walking companion of the bishop as they seek to go together on the way.
