Article excerpt

Last November 17 saw the passing of the Rt. Rev. Harry Woolston Shipps at the age of 90. Sometime bishop of Georgia, he was also a prolific writer of Church Reviews for this journal.

During a four-week stay in New York, he submitted a review for a different church each week, all published in June 2002. In one of his last electronic-mail exchanges with this editor, he wrote from his home in Savannah, "I wish geography allowed for our discussion of liturgy (over some Scotch). Liturgy and ecumenism have been two main interests of mine." Bishop Shipps, you will be missed.
