Day #514

May 29, 2015

It is the season of synod assemblies, the business meetings and information sharing times for the church. Every six years, it is time to elect a new bishop for a synod. For the one I left a little over six months ago, it is that time. After eighteen years, there will be a new bishop, new leadership, perhaps even new direction.

I was fortunate enough to be at the churchwide assembly the last time a presiding bishop was elected. It was amazing to see the Holy Spirit at work. It was a privilege to hear the candidates answer questions, see their reactions, and wait for the results of a room full of people's votes. Witnessing the coming together of like-mindedness is a process I will always remember. And when the election was over, I cried, literally, over the results, awed by the result and how it all happened.

No reason to think this process won’t be similar, for the Holy Spirit at work is amazing!
