A New PB

The House of Bishop's has just elected The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Bishop of Nevada, as the new Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. Bishop Jefferts Schori, if approved by the House of Deputies, will be the first woman ever elected Presiding Bishop in the history of the denomination, and the first woman Primate ever in the history of the Anglican Communion.

A bold move, but a blessed one welcoming holy, reconciling, and thoughtful leadership, based on what I have sensed in the few times I have had the privilege of being in her presence.

Our prayers remain with Bishop Katharine and all of General Convention.
