January 26, The Rev. Martin Smith presents: The Emerging of The Bishops. For those who identify as Episcopalians there is a special interest in learning how and when the Church chose to organize itself around the office of Bishop, as the guarantor of the church’s cohesion, a collective decision that was being consolidated in the early decades of the second century. We will look into the later epistles and early Christian documents, such as the Didache and the letters of Ignatius of Antioch.
