Presiding Bishop's Interview on NPR

An interview of Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was aired today on NPR's All Things Considered program. You can listen to it here.

Bp. Katharine's closing comment is worth repeating:

NPR: What other reforms do you hope to bring to the Church under your leadership?

PB: I think my basic hope is that we remember that, as the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1940 said, "The Church is the only institution that exists primarily for the benefit of those who are not members." Our focus needs not to be so much on internal politics, but on serving the world, on helping to heal a world that is broken.
