The Right Reverend Council Nedd II, Ph.D., TOSF is a founding member of the Project 21 black leadership network.

Bishop Nedd serves as the rector of St. Alban's Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, PA and as the third presiding bishop of the Episcopal Missionary Church. He also is the author of the book "The Final Four: A Scriptural Journey Through Advent " (November, 2013).

Although he had always felt called to the ministry, Bishop Nedd started his professional life as a political campaign worker and Congressional staffer. While working in politics, he continued to pursue his true vocation and was eventually ordained a priest in the Anglican Church and in September 2005 was consecrated as the Bishop of the Chesapeake.

Bishop Nedd's interest in the needs of young people led him to leave politics and for several years he taught at-risk youth at a charter school in the District of Columbia. His life-long interest in politics coupled with his desire to proclaim the Gospel led him to launch In God We Trust, an organization established to push back against the secular tide in this country that is seeking to remove God from the fabric of American life.

Our Superspreader President Has Blood On His Hands & So Does the Republican Party

Thom plus logo A new study from Columbia University lays the deaths of tens to hundreds of thousands of Americans at the feet of the Trump administration and the Republican party.

Comparing the United States to other developed countries, they laid out how our lack of a systemic federal response to the coronavirus has endangered Americans.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
