From April 26 to April 28, Bishop Bill visited the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes and was the guest speaker at their 2017 General Synod, along with their bishop, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Ronald Jackson. In addition to the usual business aspect of synod, there were several plenary sessions over the course of the three days, where Bishop Bill spoke on establishing common ground for sharing the Gospel. On the last day, there were ordinations for the diocese, which Bishop Bill witnessed and participated in. To see a full gallery of the Synod and ordination photos from the Diocese of the Great Lakes, visit their photo gallery site here.
