if you pass a resolution at General Conventionand no one notices. . .
Turns out life in one's actual parish is a lot different than life online.
If you read online, you would think the sky is falling.
If you were around our diocese last weekend, you would have noticed the ordination of 3 permanent deacons, and a packed cathedral to witness to it and support them.
If you were around our congregation, you would have witnessed the gathering of the body, an enjoyable time looking at the history of the 1789 Prayer Book, Eucharist, surprise visitors who dropped in to see me, gatherings over coffee and cookies, a lunch bunch that gathered at a local restaurant to check in on the restaurant owner, a member of the congregation, and some wedding planning.
I think I'll stick to the stuff I can actually make a difference in.
