The Next Presiding Bishop

May 5, 2015

A few days ago, I joined members of the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church in Connecticut on retreat where we prayed and shared our vision for all that we can be as God’s people in mission in Connecticut.  In this Easter season of renewal and rebirth, it was an exciting and energizing time.  A few moments ago, we received the names of the nominees for the next Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church and our own bishop, The Rt. Rev. Dr. Ian T. Douglas is among the nominees.  As we await in joyful expectation, let us pray for our community here in New Haven, the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the Episcopal Church around the world.

Almighty God, giver of every good gift:  Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a bishop for this Church, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
