The Bishop’s Reading List – early summer 2023

The Bishop’s Reading List

For your summer reading enjoyment, we are introducing The Bishop’s Reading List, a new, occasional feature with links to articles and other online materials that Bishop Nicholas has been reading.

This week, smart home technology as a path to energy independence; a new religious charter school in Oklahoma; the Catholic Church’s history of profiting from slavery (which we share as Episcopalians); and a woman who, quite literally, bought a mountain in northwestern Pennsylvania for God—and a far-right Christian movement called the New Apostolic Reformation.
