For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many.

This year on November 1 Episcopalians nationwide made a bold move in installing the Most Reverend Michael Curry as its twenty-seventh Presiding Bishop, the bishop overseeing the entirety of the Episcopal Church.
