Bishop David Beetge has died

We have received terrible news from South Africa this morning. Bishop David Beetge died on Saturday. He had cancer, but when I saw him at the Lambeth Conference this summer, he told me his prognosis was good, and he looked trim and healthy. Bishop Beetge was the long time secretary of the Province of Southern Africa, a member of the panel that wrote the Windsor Report and a tireless fundraiser on behalf of Africa’s poor. He made many friends in this country as he sought allies to help him raise money for his province and his people. This is a profound loss to the Anglican Communion. Please pray for his wife Carol.
