Hiatus

I've had a busy couple of weeks working for The Episcopal Majority. We've had some great stuff submitted to us. But it has required all the waking hours when I'm not at my day job.

Due to popular acclaim, we decided to put Tom Woodward's series of essays, "The Undermining of the Episcopal Church," into a print publication. [Click here for parts 1, 2, 3, and 4.] That's been an all-consuming project for me. Today we picked it up from the printer. It's being distributed to a small group now, but eventually will be available more widely. Watch The Episcopal Majority site for details.

Meanwhile, news in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion has been flying faster than I can possibly comment. I cannot believe how many ridiculous stories have appeared in the last few days. White American guys being consecrated in Africa to serve the "indigenous" population … Episcopal bishops threatening to take their dioceses out of the Episcopal Church … The bishop of Fort Worth accusing our President of the House of Deputies for something like "boundary violation" when she met with faithful Episcopalians in Fort Worth … And now the Nigerian bishops asking the Archbishop of Canterbury to cancel Lambeth 2008 because they fear for their safety.

I have a hunch that these blow-hards see the image at right when they look in the mirror. They lack a sense of irony, don't they?

Every day, it seems increasingly like the spin doctors on the right have fallen through Alice's looking glass. I can't keep up. Thank God for folks like Father Jake, Mark Harris, Thinking Anglicans, and the good folks over at The Lead. I don't know how they keep up! But they sure do.

Cats deserve better than you. You should not be allowed to own them. How can you say such horrible things?

C. Andiron, I don't understand what you mean. Would you elaborate?
