I'm not here, I'm there...

Following the election of the new primate of Canada, the Church of Canada synod did what synods do - it voted on a variety of matters and some of what they did was pleasing to the eye and ear and heart, and some not. That's the way it is with group decision making. But over the long run the argument of both the Anglican Church of Canada and The Episcopal Church is that democratic processes, awkward as they are, will move in the direction of greater good.

We shall see.

Meanwhile I am not here (Delaware) but there (Puerto Rico). I am with nine young people and six adults, visiting, talking to and with, working with, and praying with companions in the Diocese of Puerto Rico. We wil be here until next Monday (July 2). This stuff is what the companionship is about on the ground - you know - the stuff on which the Anglican Communion is build. It is good to be back at it and away from the desk of Anglican-land papers.

I'll be checking in once and a while. If you are interested in the trip drop over and visit SPYPR (St. Peter's Youth, Puerto Rico)
and see blog postings there. Now off to morning prayers.
