Thus it must be said we in the Episcopal Church, which has been progressive in the past, is now looking forward to a new Primate/Presiding Bishop to be the Exemplar to act with strong spriritual moral leaders and be the Strong Voice for all the voiceless and vulnerable in our world today.

Lord Christopher Patten, chancellor of the University of Oxford, handed the honorands their degrees in the Sheldonian Theatre before lunch was held in The Codrington Library at All Souls College.Sir Anish Kapoor, one of Britain’s foremost sculptors, and Robert Silvers, founding editor of the New York Review of Books, received Degrees of Doctor of Letters.Professor Jean-Marie Lehn, a recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1987 for his pioneering studies on the chemical basis of molecular recognition, received the Degree of Doctor of Science.Sir Harrison Birtwistle, a leading British composer, received the Degree of Doctor of Music.Kapoor said: ‘It’s a wonderful thing.

[She couldn’t attend the ceremony because] she has exams, alas!‘‘[Oxford] is a wonder. It somehow remains properly alive, because it has such a big student body. Education in great spaces – what more could one ask for?’Lehn said: ‘When you’re an academic, university is the place in which knowledge and education is being gained and transferred. Among those places, there are some very special ones. Oxford is among those very special ones. So it’s a great pleasure and an honor to be here today.’ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID June 26, 2014 at 5:16 pm With respect to Ms. Lund, nonsense.

That is important. I continue to be impressed by what she is like as a person, by her broad and deep concerns, by the depth and breadth of her mind, by what of Jesus I see and hear in her, and by her spirited service to the Church as bishop and chief pastor.
