On May 4 the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee ordained and consecrated our new bishop, the Rt. Rev. Phoebe Roaf. Bishop Roaf will be in Dyersburg soon for a pastoral visit. Bishop Roaf will be participating in a panel discussion with some of our local pastors to have a conversation on the issues of women and race in the church today. The event is being hosted at the Learning Resource Center at Dyersburg State Community College at 4 pm on Saturday, May 18. We will conclude no later than 5:30 pm.
I hope that members of the community will join us for what promises to be an enlightening and engaging discussion.
Panelists will include:
The Rev. Annetta Camp, Cumberland Presbyterian Church
The Rev. Neal Chatham, New Life Union Mission
The Rev. Brian Grow, First Christian Church
The Rev. George Turks, Salters Chapel AME
The Rev. Bill Winston, Holy Angels Catholic Church
