Bishop Duncan-Probe to bless motorcycles–and ride her own.

Bishop Duncan-Probe to bless motorcycles–and ride her own.

The Rt. Rev. DeDe Duncan-Probe, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York, will take part in a Blessing of the Bikes.

 

WOCJournal.com:

When Jesus Christ sent out his disciples to spread his teachings in what the Bible calls the Great Commission, they might not have envisioned going out on motorcycles to do it.

But, that is exactly what the Rev. DeDe Duncan-Probe — the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York, the first woman to hold that position — does and what she will do next weekend when she participates in the annual Blessing of the Bikes at Christ Episcopal Church in Jordan.

The event is slated to begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 13 at the church, 25 N. Main St., Jordan, with a brief worship service in which the bishop will bless the riders and their motorcycles. Then, she will join them on her black Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S — a birthday gift from her husband, she said — and take part in the one-hour ride before returning to the church.

Glad to hear that Bishop DeDe is continueing this Ministry . This has been one of Christ Church ministry for several years. I had the good fortune of being the priest asked to do the Bike Blessing when I took a Sunday Service.
Continued high way and by way travels to all.

Jeff

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
