Yes, I went to the San Joaquin convention

Yes, it was glorious; yes, I'm relieved and rejoicing, with and for Episcopalians in the Central Valley.

I also need some rest, and to let the experience steep for awhile. I'll give a real report later.

For now, I can't think of a better bishop for them than the one Katharine appointed, retired Bishop of NoCal Jerry Lamb. He's not a progressive--but neither is he anything like the "conservative" leadership they've had. He is honest, calm, and pastoral. He's not going to lie to them. And he'll be there for them, as they heal from the abuse they've lived through.

So much work, and so much hope. Alleluia!
