Sabbath Day


Today was our Sabbath Day, which meant that activity was at a minimum.


We started with church, and afterwards I took the opportunity of getting a picture of myself with Mary Glasspool, the newly elected Suffragan Bishop of Los Angeles who is generating controversy, since she is a partnered Lesbian woman. I am her "90 Day Companion" appointed to show her the ropes of being a new bishop. She is a delightful person who will be a great addition to this body.


This afternoon I made my annual horseback ride along with about 10 other bishops. My horse, "Junior" was pretty tame. He followed directions but did not want to go faster than the other horses.


Tonight was our "fireside chat" with the Presiding Bishop. This was the chance we have to informally talk about what is on our mind or raise questions. There was some energetic discussion about the failures of the General Convention process, the need to find ways of liberals and conservatives to work together, and a host of other issues. A moving moment came with we welcome Bishop Duracin of Haiti and heard (through an interpreter) his experience of the earthquake in Haiti.


Tomorrow we have presentations on the Emergent Church which I am especially looking forward to. Watch for tweets @azbishop.

My horse was named, "Winston". Of course, that was when I was 10 and at a ranch camp named Tan(k)ue Verde in Tucson, now a Spa. :-) Blessings on all this. I think it's pretty special. Many thanks to you bishop types on this occasion.
