Retired Easton Bishop Sorge dies

Retired Easton Bishop Sorge dies

The Rt. Rev. Elliot L. Sorge, eighth bishop of the Diocese of Easton, died Dec. 6 in Centennial, Colorado. He was 82.

Bishop Sorge was the bishop of South Central Brazil (1971-1977) and of Easton (1983-1993). He served on the staff of the Episcopal Church Center in New York as officer for the development of ministry, beginning in 1977.

Full story by ENS found here.

For those of us who were Sunday School Superintendents or Directors of Religious Education or in Youth MInistry or Camping or any number of ministries in the ’70s-’80s Bp. Sorge encouraged the development of networks for support and continuing education for us across the church. The networks were coordinated by leaders (RRECs?) in these areas. Well done good and faithful servant. Rise in Glory.

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.
