Grandmere Mimi reminds us that another Bishop was elected this week: Bishop Morris Thompson, the new bishop of Louisiana.
Bishop-Elect Thompson was Mimi's pick; an inclusive, kind man who listens, much needed in those parts. The Times-Picayune comments:
Several delegates said Thompson made a strong impression with his pastoral skills, a special need in the storm-battered diocese of 55 congregations and about 18,000 members.....Mimi's enthusiasm for her new Bishop-Elect earned her the label "raving revisionsist" from one of those Other Sites. Which proves to ME that both Mimi and Bp-Elect Thompson are worth knowing!
What people in New Orleans should know about him, he said, "is that I'm passionate about ministry, about people having a relationship with Christ. And we all have a place at the table, no matter who we are."
