General Convention: Catching up with friends old and new

ANAHEIM - We've enjoyed our first afternoon at General Convention, meeting up with many old and new friends. And we enjoyed seeing my favorite nuns, Sisters Teresa and Alice of the Sisters of the Transfiguration. We've known them for years. Sister Teresa is the Mother Superior at the Mother House in Cincinnati, and Sister Alice is at the house in Eureka.

Tuesday evening Lori and I went to the Province VIII fiesta, and caught up with Bishop Jerry Lamb, who ordained me, and is now the provisional bishop of San Joaquin. 

Paul Brockman, from St. Paul's, joined us and told us that he feels very positive about the direction of our church. We also met with with Donn Morgan, the dean and president of the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, who has family living in Charlottesville and told us he plans to visit St. Paul's at Thanksgiving. And I had a good chat with Bishop David Jones from Virginia.

We will catch up more on the doings at convention on Wednesday and download more photos.
