Okay, folks...time for some perspective
Amongst all the goings on this the current General Convention, which has become nothing more than a bunch of West Coast theological liberals patting the backs of other East Coast theological liberals, I give you something to think about. It is just after 9AM central time, and I have already had four pastoral conversations by e-mail or phone by 4 different people I know around the country concerning the fact that they are officially leaving the Episcopal Church because of the passing of resolutions involving the blessing of same sex unions and opening the priesthood to transsexuals. UPDATE: During the very process of writing this blog entry, I was interrupted by a phone call from a fifth person. After a conversation, I think I talked this person out of leaving, at least for now. Thank you, General Convention, for just making my life as a priest so much more difficult.
