The Presiding Bishop gave thanks for one of the most effective councils that she has experienced in her 9 year term. She cited “more than anything else, your attitude toward this work as a ministry, and your understanding that we are here to serve the wider church in its partnership for God’s mission, is responsible for the health that I think we enjoy.” The new committee structure and the work on the budget were 2 areas that flowed more efficiently and to good ends.
