This week, the General Synod of the Church of England has been debating the deal that it has struck with the Church of Scotland without having informed the Scottish Episcopal Church.
Like the United Reformed Church, the Scottish Episcopal Church is signed up to same-sex marriage.
So the Church of Scotland now prefers the Church of England instead, and the Church of England now prefers the Church of Scotland instead.
Little things like bishops or elders are neither here nor there, these days. What matters is something else.
They are both just catching up with the Queen, anyway. She has never been an Episcopalian in Scotland, any more than she has ever been a member of the URC in England.
