Early in the morning hours of Christmas, an important and influential Episcopal voice for interfaith inclusion and cooperation was stilled. The Rt. Rev. Jane Holmes Dixon, only the second woman to be consecrated as a bishop in the Episcopal Church, passed away in her sleep, leaving a legacy which Welton described in a written remembrance as “never being out of touch with the poorest and weakest of people in her communion, or people related to no communion at all.” In the fall of 2011, Bishop Jane received the Interfaith Alliance’s Walter Cronkite Faith and Freedom Award. This week, we revisit a conversation about her life and ministry between Welton and Bishop Jane, originally broadcast here on the occasion of that award.
