From here. After four rather tumultuous years, Bob Williams has tendered his resignation from his post as Communications Director at 815, the office of the Presiding Bishop. He was quite a departure from his predecessor, who ran the General Convention newsrooms like Perry White.
What caught our eye here is that Bob came from the Diocese of Los Angeles and was deeply involved in the last Lambeth Conference in 1998. "As editor of the Lambeth Conference's daily newspaper in 1998, Williams gained experience that will assist in interpreting events of this summer's similar gathering in Canterbury," the 815 press release says.
But will Bob be in Canterbury during this year's Lambeth Conference? Uh, no.
"During these coming weeks," the press release states, "Williams will remain in New York to oversee ongoing Church Center communication operations through mid-August." After August 15, Bob will be free to "devote more time to family and to new pursuits."
