Raewynne, I don't know much of anything about Australia. I am interested in a full exchange where a priest and I would swap homes and cures for like six weeks. We'd want some time to explore and visit but could do that mostly on days off. I'd prefer city or small town. We are in a small town here. Maybe you could suggest a couple of dioceses. Probably couldn't do this until 2009 at least. Thanks, Steve
Hi Raewynne. Good to be on Anglimergent with you. I'm still looking for a clear, definitive of just what the emergent church movement is, but I'm sure it will come to me. BTW, my wife and I are interested in doing a pulpit exchange for like 3 months in Australia. Do you have any knowledge of a blog or bulletin board for clergy willing to switch pulpits, home and cars with a US priest? Blessings, Steve
Welcome to Anglimergent -- you're only 20 hours "old" by the site's calculation! well done!
your photo looks great! Snazzy car, the kyak and great clergy "lady" clothes!!
Anyway, all this to say "your" Aussie bishop is coming to our Lambeth event - thanks so much for pointing her our way.
And as I head back to TEC I hope we'll see each other in person one day even tho I'll be across the country.
