Congratulations to Brian, a fine priest and gentle person.

His election leaves vacant the position of VP of the House of Deputies. That position is not filled between General Conventions.

  1. BRAVO!

    ¨If not at the table, why not?¨ Bishop-elect Prior

    Perhaps some of the ¨invitations¨ were smudged.

  2. Brian is a great guy. He'll make a terrific bishop - a great addition to the HOB. I'm really delighted he was elected. And, I would be less than honest if I didn't admit to my disappointment that a woman - albeit it highly qualified lesbian woman - was not elected.

    My prejudice. My problem. My honesty (okay, orthodox believers, have at it). The diocese of MN's discernment process was absolutely brim full with integrity and prayer. I applaud them and keep them and their new bishop in my sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.
