What's In ... What's Out

I must give credit to The Rev. Robert Russell Smith, Rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Perryville, Maryland (Diocese of Easton), for this one. He sent it to me on New Year's Day, and I wanted to share it. He gave his permission.

Yes, it's somewhat flippant and glib. Ah well ... too bad .... I haven't claimed to be a moderate ... though I sometimes play one on TV.

What's In and What's Out in 2007 for The Episcopal Church

Katharine Jefferts Schori is in ... Peter Akinola is out
Diocese of Nevada is in ... Province of Nigeria is out
David Booth Beers is in ... John-David Schofield is out
Gene Robinson is in ... Bob Duncan is out
Out of the closet is in ... In the closet is out
Robin Williams is in ... Rowan Williams is (apparently) out
Top 10 Reasons to be an Episcopalian is in ... 7% of Episcopalians are out
Jon Bruno is in ... Jack Iker is out
Mark Beckwith is in ... Peter Beckwith is out
Peter Lee is in ... Truro Parish is out
Diocese of Virginia is in ... Diocese of San Joaquin is out
Diocese of South Carolina is in ... Diocese of South Carolina is out
Mark Lawrence is in ... Mark Lawrence is out
Seeking partners for peace is in ... Waging reconciliation is out
The Episcopal Majority is in ... American Anglican Council is out
The Three-Legged Stool is in ... Sola Scriptura is out
Challenging the wider Church is in ... Exercising restraint is out
Do Justice is in ... The Windsor Report is out
The Church's One Foundation is in ... The Two-Tiered Anglican Communion is out
TitusOneTen is in ... TitusOneNine is out
[Thanks to Mark for that one!]

I invite you to add your own candidates for "what's in" and "what's out" in the comments section.

Great addition, Mark. It's now "above the fold."

Actually, "Anonymous," it's more like: Lisa Fox's insane anger is out ... Her bemused laughter at the schismatic "right" is in. Jolly good effort, though.

Thanks for the sentiment, Flutegirl, but I must ask: far out of what? :-)
