Bishops Matt Gunter of Fond du Lac and Jake Owensby of Western Louisiana have been churning out post after post recently. (Is this just post-vacation energy, or is God renewing the vocation of the writing bishop?)
Bishops from across the theological spectrum engaged in substantive debate: they cited Scripture, the rubrics of the prayer book, their own ordination vows, and the Constitution and Canons, all of which were deemed relevant to the issue.
Unless you've been living in a cave somewhere, you probably realize that the Episcopal Church's General Convention is looming. We're aware of that here at Covenant as well, and our own Jordan Hylden will be providing commentary on developments at General Convention over the two weeks.
We bear the weight that surrounds us in the daily trappings of life: waking, sleeping, eating, drinking, working, concerning oneself with the plight of one's neighbor. These things are a joy at times, but at others they sit heavily across the shoulders.
