Louie Crew Interviews PB Candidates

A major task of General Convention 2006 is the election of a new Presiding Bishop for the Episcopal Church. Witness Magazine has just published a great set of interviews with the candidates, available online and highly recommended.

It looks like a pretty strong group. One hopes that the new PB will take the reins and provide quick, decisive, and strong leadership in this time of uncertainty.

How interesting that all this change is coming at once in this particular convention.

Boy, you can say that again, Jeff.

I am glad Louie did the interviews and it is telling when the one candidate refused to speak to him. Not very good PR if he hopes for any kind of a turn out in his favor.

I guess I just have to ask why would a bishop from Colombia want to be our PB? Can someone from outside the Episcopal Church actually do that, or, can anyone in the Communion worldwide be selected to be our PB? Help me out here people, preferably someone with a progressive voice.

Catherine, Province IX contains dioceses of ECUSA that are not part of the USA.

I find it interesting that Bishop Schori says that her heart bleeds for Gay and Lesbian people in the the church but she seems to "sit on the fence" regarding the gay/lesbian issues. She talks about having a passion for the marginalized and for justice but no mention of LGBT persons when talking about these subjects.

If she "sits on the fence", that settles the question for me. I don't really care what her heart does.

Catherine -- Hiram is correct ... the Diocsese of Columbia is one of the Province 9 dioceses which are part of the Episcopal Church in Central and South America. And please let's not assume only "progressive voices" have information that will be helpful.

Thank you Hiram and Susan for answering my question. As for requesting a progressive voice, I guess at that particular moment I was irked by the conservative voices I have been reading. I meant no offense to anyone.
