General Convention: Quick update

Quick Update: The House of Bishops tonight took up the resolution that would lift the moratorium on ordaining openly gay bishops, and the bishops added the following amendment:
Resolved that this 76th General Convention affirm that God has called and may call such individuals to any ordained ministry within TEC and that God's call to the ministry is a mystery which the Church attempts to discern for all people through our discernment processes acting in accordance with the Constitution and Canons of the Episcopal Church.
The resolution, as amended, is back in the House of Deputies. Stay tuned...

Now that I have given you breaking news, which you can probably get faster elsewhere, this blog may be better served if I take a few steps back from the breaking news and let it sit awhile before commenting. See you in this space sometime Tuesday.
