I’m so glad I came early – getting acclimated and getting the lay of the land is so helpful. Doing lots of preparatory work, last minute drafting, reviewing procedures and pending resolutions. I attended the opening eucharist of the Union of Black Episcopalians – really wonderful service! Lots of music – my favorite part! Bishop Gayle Harris preached and she was awesome, and Bishop Waynick of Indiana celebrated. It’s the beginning of the biggest and best coffee hour of the Church and I love every exhausting minute of it. We will have mountains of work to do but when you really love the work it feels a little less like work. Pray us through this!
