This is just quite simply one of the best pieces of news I've heard in a while. Neil Lebhar was the Associate Rector when Bishop John Howe was rector of Truro. He left Truro to become rector of an Episcopal parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Florida and separated from the Episcopal Church after the decisions of General Convention 2003. His elevation to bishop is fantastic news - we saw this coming, but it's finally come. All pies, pancakes and butterbeer and yes, even the precious bottles of Old Ogdens Fire Whiskey are on the house - all week! Thanks be to God!
Read all about it here. Years ago Neil Lebhar oversaw the young adults ministry at Truro. We used to ask him, "how do you know if you are a young adult?" Neil said, "well, anyone younger than me." Thanks, Neil. May we all remain young!
