Searching for the 11th Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Nevada

“Power, as human beings exercise power, to me means the ability to change: the ability to change oneself, the ability to change one’s community. And the positive use of power is transformation of self and community toward a higher ideal, toward a healed world.”

– Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori

In Nevada, it’s about the journey before the destination. From all-to-yourself highways and dirt-road horizons to cowboys and counterculture, Nevada has always been about taking the road less traveled.
