House of Bishops: "The Communion Partners are an indispensable part of who we are. We need their witness."
Yesterday morning, the bishops sitting in secret conclave in St. Mark's Cathedral elected one of their brothers as the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, the soon-to-be Most Reverend Michael J. Curry. There was, alas, no white smoke from the cathedral chimney.
The renewal of the Church and of Creation will require people who know in their bones that the path to life leads through sacrifice and death.
