House of Bishops, Day Two, Friday, Sept 20.

September 20, 2013 Friday. I had two small breakfast meetings with the Presiding Bishop this morning on a couple of sensitive issues. Then onto morning prayer under the "big tent" outside, and a series of presentations on reconcilation, I did a lot of tweeting about this,, good wifi connections. At lunch it was back to the private room to talk with the Bishop of Jerusalem. I think I made some good suggestions as to how we might move forward with his fund raising needs. After lunch it was back into plenary session to talk about what was being done with the committee on restructure of the church and to have some discussion and feedback about this. Then eucharist, with chaplain Stephanie Spellers preaching. Always great to praise God with one's brothers and sisters in ministry! Then most got onto a bus to to downtown for a reception, but we were both tired and had not signed up, so we went to dinner at the hotel with much conversation about the wonderful experience that Laura had with Thistle Farm, a project she visited to helps women who have been abused Her visit there touched her deeply, and I suspect those her know her will be hearing at lot more about this project.
