Programming Notes

Thinking Anglicans is reporting not only increased pressure on the ABC to kick ++Schori out of the Primates Meeting but also a previously unscheduled meeting of the Nigerian House of Bishops for Feb 6-8. Looks like ++Abuja has decided to call the cards…


In light of that—and more importantly—the nice Quick Reference sheet on the Office is back up here.  Too, they’ve given me permission to plagiarize the format for a more traditional Rite I version as well. I’ll let y’all know when that’s ready…


Church politics comes and goes. The prayers of the saints—now that’s eternal.

Spin Cycles

For a while now Jim Naughton has been doing yeoman’s duty as voice of the liberal wing as a kind of counter to T19 and Stand Firm. But he’s based out of one diocese and has a bunch of other things on his plate.

Here’s something red—because M told me this morning it’s women’s heart health awareness day (or something like that). Everybody—check your hearts…

I’m digging the poetry carnival bls is hosting. I’ve got a couple rolling around and this should prod me to finish them. One uses a fairly rigid and complicated French form. I think it has a limited range of expression but can be quite cool if done right for expressions that fall within that set. We’ll see…
