  • Discerning the Call of a Synod Bishop

    In preparation for the nomination and electing of a bishop at June’s Synod Convention, Synod Council encouraged congregational councils, synod delegates, congregations, individuals, and groups, to engage in a discernment process which includes biblical reflection, prayer, and conversation.  What are the qualities God would choose in a leader? What are key roles in leadership according to scripture and the experience of the faithful over millennia? And what evidence is there that God prepares the people as well as the leader to be led into faithfulness and mission?

    This discernment is a spiritual process for a spiritual people pursuing a spiritual practice.

    Thank you to those who participated.
    A report on the discernment process response is now available here.
