New Hampshire diocese names three nominees for bishop coadjutor

first_img March 15, 2012 at 8:10 pm Bishop Robinson is a sign of hope for the ECUSA in the 21st century for his honesty, prophetic voice and great compassion for a broken world. His episcopate is historic and while controversy and maliciousness have swirled around, his presence has shone light on how deeply prejudice and ignorance are held up as some divinely revealed truth. We are forever grateful. Associate Rector Columbus, GA Peggy R.

Penelope Maud Bridges, 53, rector, St. Francis Episcopal Church, Great Falls, Virginia (Diocese of Virginia);the Rev. A.  Robert Hirschfeld, 51, rector, Grace Episcopal Church, Amherst, Massachusetts (Diocese of Western Massachusetts);the Rev. William Warwick Rich, 59, senior associate rector for Christian formation, Trinity Church, Boston, Massachusetts (Diocese of Massachusetts).More information about the nominees is here.Announcement of the slate opened a petition nomination process that closes March 25. Any additional candidates’ names are due to be announced on April 30, according to a timeline here.The bishop coadjutor will be elected May 19 at St. Paul’s Church in Concord.Because the election will occur close in time to the 77th meeting of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in July, Episcopal Church canons provide (in Canon III.11.3) for the required consents to be sought from the bishops and deputies at convention.Assuming that consent is received, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is scheduled to consecrate the bishop coadjutor on Aug. 4 at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord.On Jan. 5, 2013, the coadjutor will be installed as the 10th diocesan bishop at St. Paul’s Church.Robinson announced in November 2010 that he would retire in January 2013.“Death threats, and the now-worldwide controversy surrounding your election of me as bishop, have been a constant strain, not just on me, but on my beloved husband, Mark, who has faithfully stood with me every minute of the last seven years, and in some ways, you,” said Robinson, speaking at the conclusion of the diocese’s 208th annual convention in 2010. “While I believe that these attitudes, mostly outside the diocese, have not distracted me from my service to you, I would be less than honest if I didn’t say that they have certainly added a burden and certain anxiety to my episcopate.” March 16, 2012 at 8:05 pm Bishop Robinson would be remembered in the history of Anglican Church, Like King Henry VIII, pioneer of establishing Anglican Church from Roman Catholic in 1538. Whether, Bishop Robinson would be remembered as a pioneer of breaking the Anglican Church about 500 years after establishment, only time could tell. Interestingly both men, King Henry VIII and Bishop Robinson revolted against Church for their personal interest on sexual issues. One fought for allowing divorce from his wife and remarried another woman and the other fought for divorce from his wife and remarried to another same sex person, called him husband. Both actions are spiritually wrong according to words of God and traditional value, but both were successful in fulfilling their wishes. May God bless Bishop Robinson and his husband Mark for their new challenge in life.
