Western Mass Episcopal Bishop Douglas Fisher on walking his diocese, his wife being a priest, love of Bruce Springsteen

From Western Mass-

The Right Rev. Douglas J. Fisher became bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts on Dec. 1, 2012. He and his wife, the Rev. Elizabeth Fisher, who is rector of a church in Dutchess County, N.Y., live in the Berkshires, and the bishop is based in the diocese's headquarters at Christ Church Cathedral on Chestnut Street.

His determination to walk his diocese, which includes Worcester County, as well as the counties of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire, has made his boyish, lanky figure a not uncommon sight, and his opposition to legalized gambling, the need for tighter gun control laws and opposition to the death penalty have earned him headlines.
