DVD of Presiding Bishop's Investiture now available

The historic investiture of the 26th Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, on November 4, 2006, at Washington National Cathedral is now available on DVD and can be ordered from Episcopal Books and Resources (EbaR) or by calling 800-903-5544, according to Episcopal News Service.

The DVD, which runs approximately 150 minutes, includes a brief commentary at the beginning followed by the full investiture service.

The cost of the DVD is $26 each, which includes shipping and handling. A per-copy discount may apply for orders of multiple copies.

Addition: Some of you may not understand MadPriest's "I despair" comment below. He offers an explanation over on his marvelous blog, and it is well worth consideration; I only saw it after I posted this announcement. He raises most excellent points – and the comments there are most worthwhile too. I had never considered this, but there is something weird about having a service similar to a coronation for the person who is to be servant to the servants of the servants. This photo (which I pinched from MP's site) pretty much makes the point. But, dang! it was a most lovely service and I can't imagine not celebrating +KJS's investiture with a most marvelous celebration.
