Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop issues update

Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop issues update

The JNCPB has issued an update in their work towards nominations for the election of the next Presiding Bishop. The statement can be found here

Video interviews were conducted with bishops entering the discernment process with the nominating committee. Members of the JNCPB will meet in January to review video and written materials prior to inviting candidates to in-person meetings with the committee in the Spring.

From the statement:

JNCPB committee member Nina Vest Salmon (Diocese of Southwestern Virginia) comments, “Episcopal church leadership is remarkably strong.  Our immediate awareness is that we have excellent candidates, all bringing great gifts in the context of deep spiritual grounding.  We are grateful to the candidates for their willingness to enter into this period of discernment.”

The JNCPB asks for your prayers in the discernment process and asks also for prayers for those bishops who have entered the process.

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.
