The Rev. Don McCoid Named Interim Bishop of MNYS
« on: February 11, 2018, 01:58:31 AM »
According to the Metro New York Synod web site, Bishop McCoid will lead the synod on an interim basis. This strikes me as a very good choice, all things considered.

I have been looking for any kind of news of the transition in MYNS on the ELCA website and cannot find any.  Could you direct me to the source.

I haven't been following synod events, but why is an interim bishop needed? Did the current bishop resign? Why?

He resigned because of sexual misconduct (an affair).
