A few photos, bits of news

without comments

First, the Presiding Bishop is in the building–she arrived last evening and there was much excitement.  And she hadn’t even said a word yet.

There were some interesting moments yesterday. The first was a report that after the presentation on Sunday on the various events that have transpired around s-s blessing, delegates from the Arctic commented that the presentation made the whole business much less alien and frightening.  That this conversation happened is a huge change.  Later, + Larry (Arctic) came by the booth and we conversed for quite a while in useful ways–this too is significant progress.

Even later than that, a fellow displayer came by and commented that earlier she went over to the Zaccheus Fellowship booth and, from the images and phrases that made up the backdrop to the display, assumed that what she was encountering was a prison ministry.  Oddly true.

After a number of wistful comments along the lines of “didn’t you always have jelly beans before?” we succumbed to the pressure of popular demand and made an expedition to the Atlantic Superstore to acquire said.  Two large bags are nearly gone and there are many contented delegates.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here is a link to Kenneth Kearon’s letter from the Anglican Communion Office (sounds weird since he was just here and knows exactly what has and has not been decided by GS).
