Those Deeply Bored Methodist Bishops
Clifton Stringer, Ministry Matters
As my own United Methodist denomination is busy sunning itself in Tampa, FL at General Conference 2012, and deciding (among other restructuring initiatives) not to set aside one bishop to be President, that is, "bearer of hope and messenger of best practices," (to be sure, a job description anyone could be happy to avoid), it is perhaps a kairotic moment to think about bishops.
What are bishops?
