Mystery and Joy

What an incredible day! I am exhausted, but pretty happy. I have watched my church step up to the plate and deal with the realities of this world. Today the House of Bishops passed a measure that in essence says that our church will be inclusive. To be sure it is not a perfect measure, but it is a great step forward. In addition the House of Deputies debated and voted on the first of several measures that deal with Transgender lives and the Church. The vote will be known tomorrow, but whatever the outcome they have tried to deal with realities of Transgender lives in the church and that is significant. There is more to come. I am guessing that Cameron will post soon and there may some posts from allies.

Tomorrow Vicki will be leaving to go home. She will be sorely missed. She is the Deacon in our midst and has been a great witness. Drive safely and God Bless Vicki. Those of us that remain will continue our work of giving a real human face to the reality of Transgender people in the life of the church. God's Peace and good night.
