Sent or called?

More than 2,000 Facebook users “sent” their synod bishop, ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson or a historic bishop to friends the first week “Take my bishop, please” was available.

William E. Baum, pastor of St. Barnabas Lutheran Church, Howard Beach, N.Y., created the application.

At presstime, Robert A. Rimbo, bishop of the Metropolitan New York Synod, was the “most gifted” bishop, having been “sent” more than 390 times.
