Bishop Itty (of Oregon)

The Right Reverend Johncy Itty (bishop of the diocese of Oregon) has posted his reflections on the bishops' meeting here. He deflects the "hot-button issues," focusing instead on the mission of Episcopalians around the world: "Indeed, much of the conversation around the Episcopal Church in the context of the global communion is a very relational one. There is a strong commitment by our Church to continue to work and listen and respond to the concerns of our global partners in a manner that remains consistent with our own structure and polity as a national church body."

Toward that end, he issues a call that we would echo: "In the midst of so many competing and sometimes negative voices that amplify anxiety, we need to continue to be a champion of hope and support for thevery least among us."
