First African American bishop (sic) sets Episcopal milestone

From Charleston-

The Episcopal Church in the United States and beyond is moving into revival and renewed proclamation of the Gospel and in deed. I grew up in The Episcopal Church and have served it in the Southeast and beyond since ordination in 1979 at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, founded in 1681 and an easy walk from Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, founded in 1816.

The Episcopal Church will soon come under the spirited leadership of Michael Curry, elected Presiding Bishop by his colleagues in a landslide election at General Convention. He is our first African American Presiding Bishop and will follow the first woman in that office.
