Bishop Grafton and the 21st Century Church

Dear Friends,

GraftonI first became acquainted with Bishop Charles Chapman Grafton in 1969 while a student at Nothwestern University. Grafton had served as Bishop of the Diocese of Fond du Lac in Wisconsin from 1888 until 1912, and as a student I set out to research his life and ministry.

More recently, I expanded upon my earlier study of his episcopate, and the resulting paper was published in the May 12, 2014 issue of “The Living Church.” In this article, I explain the many similarities I see between the Church in Bishop Grafton’s time and the situation in which the Church is in the 21st centruy.

Since the article’s publication several of my colleagues suggested that I post the article to this blog. And so today I offer to you the link to the article on “The Living Church’s” website. I hope you enjoy the article.
