  1. Interesting! The bishops wish to focus on “evangelism, discipleship and mission?” What happened to the Jesus call, “that they all may be one?” Without bringing together a complete diversity of the population are they really serious about “we’ve just got to have a more balance agenda?” Amazing leadership decision?!?
