Presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church leads worship services in Richmond

From Richmond-

A Christian's duty should not end with the weekly worship service, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church urged Sunday.

Speaking at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in downtown Richmond, the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori said Christians must extend their efforts beyond the physical building to reach people within the community who are in need.

"The work we do on Sunday morning and inside what we traditionally call 'the church' … is about supporting people for their lives outside of this place," she said. "Get lost in your involvement in the needs of the world and the opportunities to love your neighbor."

Jefferts Schori, the 26th presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church and the first woman to serve in the position, led worship services Sunday at St. Paul's and at St. John's Episcopal Church in Church Hill.
