Congratulations to The Rev. Susan Russell, now to be made a Canon in the Diocese of Los Angeles. She is amazingly focused and clear, an advocate in the most holy sense of the word, and able to craft the talking point and personal witness to its heights. The honor is a "working" honor, for she continues to be a clear voice for full inclusion in the church.
The Pluralist posted a sketch of Susan Russell, Elizabeth Kaeton and Mark Harris which does none of us much honor re looks, but is none the less delightful. There was no caption, but maybe there is one for the moment: Two Canons and a Big Gun.
At any rate, kudos to Susan. The honors she receives are on the one hand confirmation of her great work. On the other hand they are mere shadows of that work, a work of love grounded in faith. The work itself is the honor, and the honor is all ours.
