Staffing the church in a time of change

Our churches don’t want denominational programs anymore. Religious goods and services aren’t necessarily what people want, he notes, from either local churches or denominational staff.

Presiding Bishop will not seek re-election

There is a tradeoff between the learning curve and the ability to lead more effectively as a result of developed relationships both within and beyond this Church. At the same time, I recognize that standing for election as Presiding Bishop carries the implicit expectation that one is ready to serve a full term. I do not at present believe I should serve and lead in this ministry for another nine years. ~Katharine Jefferts Schori
