Meanwhile, there's this Big Meeting in Bedford, Texas. I can't write a huge amount right now, and may not have that much profound to say anyway. But I just need to go on record that I simultaneously 1) don't think it had to come to this, and am pretty clear about my vocation to remain an Episcopalian; and 2) wish the folks well. They're my friends. I'm happy that they're excited about what they're doing, and hope they heed my repeated hope that we all "walk apart close together."
Off to Gotham.
