Marvil Thomas Shaw III was born in Battle Creek, grew up in Coldwater, and attended Alma College.  A celibate gay monk ordained into the priesthood in 1971, Shaw became Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts in 1995.  Throughout his tenure, he advocated for minority rights, for allowing women, gay men, and lesbians to be ordained, and for other causes of social justice.
