Hi, Stefani. Yes I have heard about the inmate who became a priest in prison and is now outside the razor wire. He and I became priest around the same time and for the same reason - to provide the sacramental care of those who find themselves incarcerated.
I followed his ministry with great interest while he was incarcerated. However since his release, I have not heard any more about him until your comment. If anyone knows how I might reconnect, I'd appreciate the information being passed on to me.
Stef--I like the moving about the church idea, but ours is so small we'd knock someone or something over!--and we have no functional sound system, so the best acoustics are from either the altar or the nave crossing!
i was near the front next to a clergywoman i know from Taize trips so suspect we may indeed have done that peace thing...samll world, but seeing i only know what your shadow looks like i wouldn't have known ;o)
do i take by "the shepherds" svc you mean the service for those with us before lambeth? if so i was there, sitting over by the Tamil worship band....
well if you get up anything intersting and 'anlimergant' in Reno i am sure i can turn it into a research visit some time i'm in the states ;o)
So I just saw your post to me from January today - how sad is that! Thanks for your comments on my smile and sermon. There are times I live by the motto - Smile, it makes people wonder what you're up too!
Are you doing anything in connection with Lambeth? Regardless, I must say I am a bit jealous as I am an Anglophile through and through - I love being in England.
Thanks or the welcome, and the kind comments on my photo! Glad +Barbara will make it to the gathering. And yes, i'd love to meet you - hopefully that may happen sooner rather than later (of course your new dio. could invite me to do a clergy con ed event...)
Great to hear from you. Congrats on becoming rector of Trinity Church, Reno. Being an MDG congregation and a Millennium Congregation are not necessarilly the same. They probably support the MDGs, hence an "MDG Congregation." Millennium Congregation is a specific project that connects congregations of all faiths in supporting Millennium Villages in Africa (currently in Rwanda). You can learn more at www.millenniumcongregation.org. I'd be happy to let you know more and, once you are settled at Trinity, ways you might be able to get involved.
