New bishop

What a joy to read the excellent article in Monday’s News Democrat about our new Presiding Bishop.

Bishop Michael Curry is an African-American with a wonderful witness of the faith he has in Christ. His enthusiasm is wonderful tonic at the right time for us. His civil rights record is also exactly needed for our Church and nation.

When many believe they are shut out of justice and equal rights because of the color of their skin, which affects all of us if we care about being American, Bishop Curry will speak wisely and knowledgeably to that longtime scourge in our country’s history.

His is an inclusive and unifying ethic, and I am extremely hopeful about his leadership.

Rev. Canon Dale Coleman, Belleville
