This can feel like a daunting prospect, but Bishop Carlye has some simple suggestions for how to approach this. (Time: 2:05.)

This bi-annual gathering of all bishops in the Episcopal Church allows the bishops to learn, share information, pray together, and to consider wise actions for our church. It was an honor to attend and a blessing to get to know the other bishops of our church.
