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

White Smoke in Rochester from Newark

By the grace of God and the movement of the Holy Spirit, in convention at Trinity Episcopal Church, Geneva, The Rev. Dr. Prince Singh was elected to become the 8th Bishop of Rochester.

The majority of Bishop and Standing Committees of the Episcopal Church consenting, he will be ordained and consecrated a bishop by Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori and all Bishops of The Episcopal Church present on May 31, 2008 at the Eastman Theater, Rochester, New York.

Prince is a priest in the Diocese of Newark, the second priest to have been elected bishop in the Diocese of Rochester where the present Bishop Diocesan, Jack McKelvey, was formerly Diocesan Suffragan in Newark, having been elected as rector of St. Paul's, Englewood.

I'm thinking the Diocese of Newark ought to begin charging a 'finder's fee' or 'surcharge' on all priests nominated from our diocese. It might be a great fundraising strategy.

Please hold Prince and all the candidates in your prayers.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice!
