Because we recognize that these complaints are serious, and because they cannot be resolved prior to our October 27 election, the Standing Committee voted unanimously on August 29 to remove him from consideration in the upcoming election for the 11th Bishop of Colorado.As these changes in our discernment and election process have unfolded, we have been in close communication with Canon Pipkin’s bishop as well as with Bishop Todd Ousley, who works for the Presiding Bishop and provides oversight and guidance for all episcopal elections. These allegations have been referred to them for further action under the provision of The Episcopal Church’s canons.Further, we have decided unanimously to proceed with our election with two nominees on the slate–The Reverend Kimberly D. Lucas and The Reverend Canon Ruth Woodliff-Stanley. Both nominees have reaffirmed their enthusiastic desire to continue with us as we seek our next bishop.We remain deeply grateful for the faithful, careful, and thorough work previously undertaken by the Search Committee on our behalf. We have informed its members of the basis for the recent decisions that have been made, and they have unanimously expressed their unqualified support. Both they and we are confident that the two faithful, talented priests now on the slate possess the gifts to provide strong episcopal leadership to serve God’s mission with us here in Colorado.We know that some of you may have questions about this news.While it is unusual for a diocese to elect a bishop from a slate of two nominees, it is not without precedent. In our case, the Standing Committee charged the Search Committee last January to present a slate of four nominees to the people of the diocese. The initial slate included three priests because one of the four final candidates decided to stand for election as bishop in another diocese.With two nominees now on the slate, we trust that the strength of our common life, our commitment to serving God’s mission, and the work of the Holy Spirit are leading us forward even in the midst of these unexpected changes. On October 27, we will elect a bishop who will work faithfully with us in creating a vision for our future as the Body of Christ.When the Standing Committee first met last November to pray about and to reflect upon the election of a new bishop, we identified a passage from Jeremiah that we thought would serve us well during this transition: “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)We are continuing now with the same confidence and trust in God’s grace. Thank you for your continued prayer for the election of our new bishop.Faithfully,Mr. Robert MorsePresident of the Standing CommitteeThe Episcopal Church in ColoradoMr. Bob Morse, PresidentFront Range Lay RepresentativeSt. John’s Episcopal Church, BoulderThe Reverend Terry McGugan, Vice PresidentHigh Plains Clergy RepresentativeChrist Church, DenverMr. Jim Wolfe, SecretaryHigh Plains Lay RepresentativeGood Shepherd Episcopal Church, CentennialThe Reverend Charlie BrumbaughNorthwest Clergy RepresentativeSt. John the Baptist Episcopal Church, BreckenridgeThe Reverend Peter FloydSangre de Cristo Clergy RepresentativeSt. Michael’s Episcopal Church, Colorado SpringsMs. Jan JohnsonNorthwest Lay RepresentativeSt. Peter’s of the Valley Episcopal Church, BasaltThe Reverend Nature JohnstonSouthwest Clergy RepresentativeThe Church of the Nativity, Grand JunctionThe Reverend Michael McManusFront Range Clergy RepresentativeChurch of the Transfiguration, EvergreenMs. Erin SmithSouthwest Lay RepresentativeSt. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church, AlamosaMr. Harry TournaySangre de Cristo Lay RepresentativeChurch of the Ascension & Holy Trinity, Pueblo Rector Knoxville, TN Youth Minister Lorton, VA Bishop Elections Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Collierville, TN Rector Bath, NC Rector Albany, NY Submit a Job Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit a Press Release Rector Hopkinsville, KY Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Bishop Diocesan Springfield, ILlast_img
