Sad news that Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches Bishop Tony Palmer died yesterday after he collided on his motorbike with a drunk driver who apparently had crossed into his lane. After eight hours of surgery, he succumbed to his injuries.
I was blessed to interview him via Skype from South Africa where he was attending I believe a College of Bishops meeting. Palmer is the friend of Pope Francis who recorded a greeting from the Holy Father that Palmer brought to a leadership conference for charismatic leaders in Texas last January.
What a lovely young man. I could see why Pope Francis loved him and called him friend. I was so looking forward to meeting him at the Fire and Fusion Conference here in Ottawa at the end of April. The conference will go ahead and I expect it will be spiritually significant.
