The Most Revd Katharine Jefferts Schori reflects upon her time as Presiding Bishop

The Most Revd Katharine Jefferts Schori reflects upon her time as Presiding Bishop

In a 10-minute video interview with the Episcopal News Service, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori reflects on her nine-year term in office that began Nov. 1, 2006. She discusses her vision of the reign of God on earth, her hopes for The Episcopal Church, what it has been like to be the first woman to hold the office of presiding bishop and primate, how she has been inspired and where she has found solace. In the last few minutes she shares the very next role that she will be playing as she takes some time to teach two courses; one course on Religion & Science and the other on the Spirituality of Peacemaking during the S[ring Semester at the Virginia Theological Seminary. She seeks that as a time of discernment for the next chapter in her life.

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.
