The New Bishop
I live in central Virginia, USA and I am a member of the Virginia diocese of the Episcopal church. Our current bishop — Susan Goff — is retiring this year, so we are looking for a new bishop to lead us. A search committee evaluated the qualifications of many candidates for this important post and came up with a list of four names. The new bishop is elected by delegates — both ordained and lay — from all the parishes in the diocese.
In other posts I have suggested that three types of organization can respond to climate change. They are:
Governments (both national and international);
Businesses and industry; and
Individuals and small non-profits.
We could add a fourth group to this list: the church.
