We LOVED getting to meet and hear Dee Dee Myers last night at the book signing for her new book "Why Women Should Run the World."

She totally rocked ... and ... BTW ... is a Diocese of Washington Episcopalian. Who knew? Anyway, put her book on your "to order" list and show up at one of her book gigs if you can -- well worth the time!
A "must read" is Katie Sherrod's "Through the Looking Glass into Canon32Land" -- a VERY illustrative exploration of just how weird things have gotten in the Diocese of Fort Worth. Don't miss it. Really.
I'm probably a little biased, but my rector, Ed Bacon, preached a particularly great, insightful, challenging & faith-filled sermon on Sunday, entitled: "When God Gives Us Sight" ...
It is tempting to interpret John 3:16-17 as all about being saved from eternal damnation. That all you have to do is believe in Jesus and a set of doctrines about Jesus to be "saved." I believe that interpretation is, at its heart, sinful.

Meanwhile, this morning attorneys for same-sex couples presented arguments to the California Supreme Court in an historic lawsuit seeking to strike down state law that bars lesbians and gay men from marriage. I've gotten a couple of calls from media about the story ... Equality California has some good links on the case ... including a link to a webcast of the arguments. We'll see where it goes from here.
All for now ... back to Holy Week schedules and the other "business of parish life!"
