Saturday (St Teresa of Avila)

  • My morning was consumed--joyfully--by my attendance at and participation in the installation of John Roth as the new bishop for the Central-Southeast Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. By virtue of the Episcopal Church's full-communion relationship with the ELCA, I was among those laying hands on him. The intention of the agreement was (and presumably still is) that, by such acts, ELCA bishops and clergy will, gradually over a generation, be brought fully into the historic succession.
  • Household chores and a long walk along a straight-as-an-arrow former rail bed on a gorgeous autumn afternoon. Getting prepped for a very full day in Decatur and Danville tomorrow.
