African American Presiding Bishop.We also were delighted to hear the letter of congratulations from President Barack Obama.Now comes the nitty gritty hard work of fully supporting our new Presiding Bishop in his task, together with us all, in proclaiming and living the great commandment of Jesus to love God and our neighbors as ourselves…..perhaps the hardest objective to accomplish, but this we must do if we are to make any imprint for lasting good on our fractured and polarized world.SincerelyIris R.
