NAVAJOLAND: Bishop-elect presents plan to move church forward

From ELO-

Delegates to the 34th annual Convocation of the Episcopal Church in Navajoland affirmed their bishop-elect's plan "to move forward on the next part of our journey" toward preparing for the future election of a Navajo as bishop.
The Rev. Canon David Bailey, bishop-elect of Navajoland, presented a four-part plan for the ECN, during the convocation held June 11-13 at St. Christopher's Mission, Bluff, Utah.

The plan included:

• Creation of the Bishop Steven Plummer School. The school would offer training within Navajoland especially for those identified for ordained and licensed lay ministries. It would operate as part of the Hooghan Learning Circle, the education program of ECN. It is to be named in memory of the late Rt. Rev. Steven Plummer, the first Navajo to serve as Bishop of Navajoland. His dream, noted Bailey, was to have more Navajo educated so they could serve all ministries of the church, and especially at the altar.
