Farewell Bishop Moncure
One of United Methodism's more effective episcopal leaders died tragically at 61 earlier this week. Bishop Rhymes Moncure led the Nebraska Area for a number of years before moving to head the Dallas Area. A passionate ecumenist, he also modeled servant ministry by washing the feet of the ordinands of his Conference. A story from the United Methodist News Service can be read here. Thank God for such a faithful leader; may his family and Conference be comforted.
