A Bishop Reflects on Ordained Ministry
"Where the Bishop is, there is the Church." (St. Ignatius of Antioch ca. 38 - 108)
In the contemporary culture all too often the Bishop is seen as a CEO, and indeed, in some settings he is referred to as a "Judicatory Executive" thus demonstrating the contemporary disconnect with the Faith of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. The Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker, the Third Bishop of Fort Worth, has valiantly been a contemporary Confessor of the Ancient Faith. During his 2015 Sabbatical he most generously drew from 23 years as a Bishop, Sermons, Addresses and Meditations that have blessed those who have been privileged to be under his pastoral care. The words are profound without being esoteric, and resound with a passion, particularly for his deacons and priests, that will inspire all readers.
