Diocese of Bethlehem seeks new bishop

Diocese of Bethlehem seeks new bishop

The Diocese of Bethlehem in Pennsylvania is beginning the search for a new bishop. They have had a bishop provisional since 2014, when The Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe was elected following the retiring of The Rt. Rev. Paul Marshall, the Diocese’ eighth bishop. At the time, the search committee felt that they were not ready for a new bishop. “Leadership had atrophied, committees were stressed and not functioning well, financial resources were in need of realignment and transparency. Relationally, some among us were hurt, and we were in need of healing.”

Applications are being accepted until September 18, 2017.

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.
