Outwaiting Tanzania and making the sign of the cross
I'm trying not to read too much about what going on at the Primate's meeting in Tanzania. Apparently, so far so good, and the ultra-right is entirely pissed about it. That's what I've gleaned from a glance a a couple of the blogs.
Sticking with the meeting blow by blow, with unending speculation and analysis is beyond me. Maybe I'm a wimp, but I know there's nothing I can do, and I want it over with. I want to know where we are, and not be angsting over every speech, paper or comment.
We won't know where we are until it's over.
My prayers go to Bishop Katharine, especially, for her spiritual, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing through all of it. My prayers cover all, asking they hear the
voice of the Spirit speaking to them. I pray they act without hubris and self-righteousness. I pray they act in love. They will, if they listen to the Spirit.
Some will listen. The jack-booted ones in purple garb I don't expect too much from. It's a good thing God is an optimist about human beings.
P.S. -- I thought I'd try a photoshoppy thing with Appleworks, figuring if the Mad One can do it, maybe I can. Not too bad for a first effort.
