I know I wish there was more substantive business at the UUA General Assembly, but looking to the General Convention of the Episcopal Church — well, I’m glad we don’t have that much business.
I won’t comment much because the list of people blogging on the General Convention is longer than your arm. Will the Piskys stay in the Anglican Communion, or be asked to go, and what about the conservatives?
The one bit of news that has head’s itching about some inner meaning is the newest name change, from the Episcopal Church of the USA to The Episcopal Church. What’s next, The Church? And is there something of “we’re a bit of a communion of our” going on? (I still think of them as the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society; www.dfms.org pulls up the ECUSA/TEC site.) I’ll leave any deeper for others to ponder.
But I will say this, if the conservatives prevail then they’d better clean up their public image, from the bishops on down. They come off as petty and high-handed. Of course, they can ignore this advise, in which case they should find a dictionary and look up Phyrric victory.
I poke my head into a number of blogs, but the ones I read in full are The Daily Episcopalian, the defacto official blog of the Diocese of Washington (D.C.), and Father Jake Stops the World. I also look forward to more from the GenXalicious EpiscoPod.
