OK ... I'll admit it ... I'm not quite ready to "let it go" yet. The symbolic "passing of the mantle of leadership" represented by this photo of +Frank passing the crozier to +Katharine (and did I imagine it or did +Frank's voice break a bit as he prayed God's blessing on the new Primate?) was such a moment of grace and power and hope that I'm planning to wallow just a bit more.
So here are some other reflections I've read and been moved by in continued celebration of a grand, grand day ... and a time of new beginnings. I plan to continue to enjoy them ... as I get back to the "real world" of acolyte, usher and LEM trainings, vestry agendas and preaching schedules!
