Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, will face a skeptical group in Tanzania.

Bishop Jefferts Schori, the first woman presiding bishop in the history of the Anglican Communion, appeared a bit surprised at the celebrity treatment but clearly enjoyed the sentiment.

She is about to head off to a hostile reception.
