Tuesday (Jackson Kemper)
Still at Lake Logan, an Episcopal conference center in the mountains of western North Carolina. It's a quite lovely place. The program for new bishops is called Living Our Vows and lasts for three years, so we have three "classes" of bishops here. We do some things together and some things by class. Today we spent the morning sharing "critical incident reports" in small groups and the afternoon with the Presiding Bishop's chancellor discussing a whole range of issues regarding the nature and exercise of a Bishop's authority. The evening was devoted to a plenary discussion of general mission strategy in a post-Christisn world. Of course, there's also a great deal of informal interaction at mealtimes, etc. It's been very stimulating.
