Hallelujah! Rev. Jim Dorff, my District Superintendent when I served as pastor at Krum UMC and the pastor who baptized Madeleine and Everett, has been elected a Bishop of the United Methodist Church! It took 23 ballots and you can follow the nail biting balloting here and here. Here is a blog that follows the balloting and has photos, an interesting viewpoint from someone from Nebraska, apparently you have to have a Texas connection to become a Bishop.
Now, the sad news is that Bishop Dorff will be assigned to a different episcopal area, in the south central jurisdiction. Bishop Dorff is headed to the San Antonio area.
I love Jim Dorff, he rocks!
