He pledged to remain active over the next two years. “I will continue my work of evangelising the unchurched and the de-churched. I get to talk to probably more unchurched people than any other bishop in the Episcopal Church. On college campuses, speaking to various public forums, and also in my work with gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people, I get the opportunity to make the case for God and for God’s Church — either to those who have never known God’s unimaginable love, or to those who have been ill-treated, in the name of a judgmental God, and who have left the Church.
