Posted Jul 20, 2016

[Episcopal Peace Fellowship press release] The Rev. Bob Davidson of Loveland, Colorado, is the new chair of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s 21 member National Executive Council.

“We are pleased to welcome Bob to EPF’s leadership. Bob’s father, the late-Bishop William Davidson of the Diocese of Ohio was NEC chair from 1986-1989 – that’s a wonderful EPF Family Circle,” said the Rev. Allison Liles, EPF’s executive director.

I am a member and chair of the NEC of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship because I rely on EPF to challenge me at a global level with its prophetic witness in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, efforts to curb gun violence, abolishing the death penalty and empowering young adults to become peacemakers. It is the constant feeding from the presence of EPF in so many peace initiatives that compels me to live out my baptismal covenant of striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being.

Davidson earned a master’s degree from the University of Kentucky in 1978; since 1981 he has served his whole ordained ministry in the Diocese of Colorado since 1981. Davidson has served as a Deputy to General Convention seven times beginning when he was eighteen in 1970 in Houston, Texas.The Episcopal Peace Fellowship has championed peace,

The Episcopal Peace Fellowship has championed peace, nonviolence and social justice issues since its founding on Armistice Day in 1939.

    Congratulations to Bob Davidson! I last saw him in Washington, DC,
