Author Diana Butler Bass, writing in the Washington Post, reflects on the the tenure of Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Communion, and “the first woman elevated to the position.”
“Jefferts Schori proved a tough leader, determined to protect the church, employing her resources to quell dissent and maintain church law. As a result, the Episcopal Church lost far fewer members than had been predicted and won almost every court case brought against it. Denominational conservatives hated her. Even some liberals, however, accused her administration of being overly authoritarian.”
