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.
