Here we go again…

I am sorry to have been delinquent in posting, but I do have a rare solid excuse: I got married!

Anyway, my honeymoon is over and the church political scene has become very active locally. I haven’t been following closely the Suffragan Election slated for December 7, because the candidate I have wanted from the beginning is among the finalists. I’ll report soon on how the election is proceeding.

Meanwhile, the first regular Convention of the Diocese of New York is on for this Saturday, November 9. So far, budget and clergy compensation seem to be the only issues (nice, outward, evangelistic subjects, those.) Plus small group discussions called “Indaba,” which will provide another alternative to doing something about the church-wide decline. May the Good Lord inspire us, nevertheless. —J. Douglas Ousley

  1. Mark says:

    “Indaba” is not a great word. When I first heard it, I immediately thought of “intifada”, and had to check the spelling and definition. The Episcopal Church should steer clear of trends and the use of language that can be misconstrued.
