General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

Another Daft American Idea

Richard Ingrams in The Independent (London):

"The conflicts over gay bishops etc, which are threatening to break up the Anglican communion, are reported as a struggle between the traditionalists and the liberals. I would prefer to see the dispute as one between those who are still reasonably sane and others who are dangerously bonkers."

"It was a view confirmed by the pronouncement this week by the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in America, Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who in her first sermon told the congregation: "Our Mother Jesus gives birth to a new creation - and you and I are His children."
