And the Bishop Said . . .
Thank you for your honest and gracious letter. I share your reservations about church as bureaucracy and I am sure others in the diocese do as well. But the main thing is that you have found your calling and are serving God wonderfully right now. I trust your discernment that ordination would only detract from your present ministry. Blessings. I look forward to serving with you in the future.
Wow. Is this guy a class act, or what? Like he doesn't have more important things to worry about right now, with Lambeth and so forth! He responded within three hours of getting my e-mail.
Yay! Sometimes church works the way we all want it to!
