Thanks be to God!

BTW, are most bishops elected on the first ballot, or does it usually drag on longer?

Congrats to Nick!

This is WONDERFUL news. A gift to Rhode Island. Yes - thanks be to God!

Congrats to Nick! Last week he was at the Phoenix Comic-con, this week he is elected Bishop. Talk about an emergent Bishop.
