Sermons, prayers, and occasional commentary of the Rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Highland Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Saturday, April 21, 2012
The Rev. Dorsey W. M. McConnell, Rector of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, was elected this afternoon to serve as our next bishop, the Eighth Bishop Diocesan of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.
Bishop-elect McConnell is someone I have known personally as a person of deep spiritual maturity and faith, a brilliant thinker and exciting teacher, and a caring pastor. He has also given much of his attention to finding ways to construct healthy relationships and common life in the often divisive controversies that have shaken the Episcopal Church over the past decade and more. A bridge-builder.
I know we will all look forward to welcoming Dorsey and his wife Betsy as they join us here in Pittsburgh later this summer. I'll do my best to get him into the pulpit at St. Andrew's at the first opportunity!
