Daily Episcopalian: The story they missed

General Convention

Jim Naughton has posted a long reflection on yesterday’s events and what their meaning might be. Definitely worth the read:

“I got to see Bishop Jane Dixon just after the election was announced, she was still drying her tears. I caught up with Bishop Barbara Harris tonight. She told me that she said to Bishop Dixon when the election was announced on the fifth ballot, ‘Jane, thank God we lived to see this day.’ And Bishop Dixon said, ‘Thank God we didn’t have to hear the news in heaven.’

As I may have said before, it is hard to underestimate that boost this has given the convention. No one thought the bishops would have the courage to make this choice, and, frankly, it is making us feel a little better about the whole notion of having bishops.”
