Retired bishops reflect in Episcopal news site's video on Katrina

From New Orleans-

The Episcopal bishops of Louisiana and Mississippi reflect on Hurricane Katrina and its lessons for the church in a video posted Friday (Aug. 28) by Episcopal News Service. The Right Revs. Charles Jenkins of Louisiana and Duncan Gray III of Mississippi retired in the years after the storm struck Aug. 29, 2005.

"A church that is focused inwardly, a church – as I have said before – that exists for those who are already in it, I think, is a church that is not living up to the calling of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ," Jenkins is quoted as saying. "I would want the rest of the church to know that, here in New Orleans, she was reaching out to people to whom no one else would reach."
