Wednesday (Ss Mary & Martha)

  • Another three-hour House of Bishops meeting, which, once again, required preparatory reading. In both plenary and “table group” conversation, we discussed the advisability of creating broad leeway for liturgical experimentation in response to the pandemic. Read: “virtual communion,” which, IMHO, is a complete non-starter. The notion did not get a warm reception. A majority also approved a statement on the involvement of federal law enforcement personnel in local disturbances in Portland and other places.
  • Had a substantive phone conversation with Canon Evans.
  • Attended to straggling loose ends pertaining to my agreement with the Standing Committee (now released), clergy deployment issues, “elections & appointments” issues, and the still-in-formation racism study task force.
