I’m back from Convention (with a cold!) It was good, but emotionally charged…Finally, after 8 ballots we have elected a new Bishop-in-Charge for the Convocation of the Episcopal Church in Europe.
Rector, Saint John’s Church, Newtonville, Massachusetts, USA, and Director, Amherst College Press
While he wasn’t my first choice, I am very happy with Mark’s appointment. Of course, we grieve over the loss of the exciting ways and places the other candidates could have led us, but we all look forward to the places that Mark will guide us to. His consecration will be held in April at the Cathedral in Paris.
This linkis to a sermon he recently gave in which he mentions the Convocation…we like it. A lot. It shows, I think, that he has some understanding of the unique position the Convocation has…
