Abstract:

"Being a priest is often compared to being a shepherd. People do, from time to time, need a poke here or a prod there. But mostly, they need to know someone is watching out for them. Rev. William Billow has been that gentle guiding hand for multiple communities across the nation, but he is best known for his services in Washington, DC, from St. Albans School to Washington National Cathedral. He practices 'the ministry of presence,' witnessing and overseeing the baptisms, weddings, and funerals of the members of his flocks. The lives he has touched and encouraged in his flocks include presidents, journalists, and many other inspired neighbors. As he moves from community to community, his story does not fail to enlighten and inspire"--Jacket flap.
