Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Thank you

Thank you, Christopher.

Thank you for pulling the picutres and the story off your Weblog.

Thank you for admitting you were wrong.

Thank you for apologizing.

You have lived into your baptismal covenant. That's never an easy thing to do. Well done, sir.

We are Episcopalians and Anglicans. We can agree to disagree. That is in our spiritual DNA.

An important lesson learned is one my grandmother always taught: "You never make yourself look good by making another person look bad."

Your sister in Christ,

Elizabeth+

"You never make yourself look good by making another person look bad."

I truely agree with this piece of wisdom.

I was wondering if perhaps in light of what Rob Eaton+ said re: +Schofield, ie. that he asked him if what was being said on the HOB/HOD list was true and he said no, whether you may be in a position to admit a mistake too?

Perhaps you know something that I don't, but if there is the possibility for you to have made a mistake, I think it would be good to say so.

If each individual holds themselves to high standards of justice and forgiveness then maybe things could be less bitter within the Anglican Church. (Well that goes for everywhere!)

My sources about Mr. Schofield are absolutely solid.

Rev Elizabeth,

Your thanks are substantially more gracious than the grudging appology you elicited.
