Rt. Rev. Craig B. Anderson
President of the National Council of Churches USA, 1998-1999

Episcopal Church

“It is not by accident that I chose the Washington National Cathedral for my installation. It is a House of Prayer for all people. Also, it is the National Cathedral and we are the National Council of Churches. This Cathedral overlooks our nation’s Capitol, for which we pray. Its mission is to provide a clear, forceful, compelling articulation of the Gospel, so that we might not neglect but we might remember and we might serve.

“Our vision must spread to this Capitol and to the world God sustains and loves.”

– Bishop Craig B. Anderson
