Mark Edington elected bishop for Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe

From ENS-

The Rev. Mark D.W. Edington was elected bishop of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe on Oct. 20.

He will become the second elected bishop of the convocation, after Bishop Pierre Whalon. Edington currently is rector of Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Newtonville, Massachusetts, and director of the Amherst College Press.

“I begin to work with you from a position of learning and posture of humility,” Edington told the assembled delegates at the Convocation’s convention in Waterloo, Belgium, via cellphone. “I come to you as a person eager to learn, eager to be a disciple.”

The other nominees were the Rev. Paul-Gordon Chandler, president of CARAVAN, an international peace-building nonprofit; the Rev. Steven D. Paulikas, rector of All Saints’ Church in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, New York, and the Very Rev. Benjamin Shambaugh, dean of the Cathedral Church of St. Luke, Portland, Maine.
