What quality and skills would you most value in the next PB?

The Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of a Presiding Bishop is asking for your opinion.

They write:

Dear Friends of the Episcopal Church,

The General Convention of the Episcopal Church will elect a new Presiding Bishop at our meeting, June 25-July 3, 2015. We are beginning our search and nominating process.

The Joint Nominating Committee wants your input. This survey instrument will be used to help the Nominating Committee write a document describing the priorities and hopes of the Church in our selection process. It will also inform our understanding of the qualities and skills we would like to see in our Presiding Bishop. We ask you to take a few minutes to complete this survey. Please know your responses will be kept confidential.

One of the interesting facets of this election is that the incumbent, the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori is eligible to serve another term.

What struck me is that the questions seem to assume that the PB’s role won’t fundamentally change in the coming restructuring, just shift which aspect gets emphasized most.

I very much appreciate and value the qualities, skills, grace and strength brought to the office of Presiding Bishop by Katharine Jefferts Schori. They are equaled by few and exceeded by none. If she is willing, and the church consents, there are no better hands into which we could place ourselves for the ongoing ministry and future of The Episcopal Church.

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.
