    Excellent presentation, Bishop Bill, on the Office of Bishop. I hope that all the present and future Confirmands view this. Thank you for taking the time to produce such a fine quality educational piece.

    I like the thought that the Bishop represents the various congregations to one another, as well as to other church bodies in the larger world/church. The Episcopal Church is not just the cathedral, nor a village church, nor a suburban church, nor a church on a reservation– it is all of these. The Bishop symbolizes that for me, as he (or in other places, she) makes parish visitation throughout the Diocese. Thanks for the teaching, Bishop Bill!

    Thank you for this interesting and thought provoking teaching series. At a time when so many of us are facing difficult congregational choices, it is very encouraging to have the connection you provide us through your blogs and videos.

    Thanks, Bishop, for this articulate discharge of your teaching role. I most appreciate your reaching out in every possible way to engage the congregants of our Diocese. I also appreciate your determined visibility beyond our denomination. The Episcopal Church has much to offer in our time – I say that from deep feeling. Looking forward to the next “teaching.”
