I'm still processing what has happened at General Convention in Anaheim. I think I'll try to post something of a reflection at some point this week. Probably sooner than later. While I'm tired following Convention, I'm not as absolutely blown as I was following the conventions in 2003 and 2006. That's probably because there was so much less question about what was going to happen once we took the vote of D025 in the form it was presented in to the House of Deputies. The big surprise for me was the margins in the passage.
But I do have this one thought kicking around in my head. It's a riff off a lecture that I heard given by Margaret Mitchell of Chicago Div School on St. Paul's letters to the Church in Corinth and the main point that Paul was making to the people asking him to adjudicate between them.
If you're looking for who won or who lost then you've lost. The problem isn't being right and others wrong. The problem is that we don't love each other enough.
