    And word has it that the soon-to-be Primate Emeritus of IARCA will be in attendance at this consecration just as he was at that of the Bishop of NH's. Love it.

    Hmmm. I'm not sure I have a Festive Native Dress. I better get busy. I'm sure flip-flops will be involved.

    I think I have a few archival photos of you in "native dress" -- and you're ALWAYS festive!

    My wife, Sharon aka: Beeper, and I will be singing in the choir to show our support of these two magnificent bishops-to-be. It means so much to us to be part of this truly historic event. We view it as an affirmation of our theology and our relationship with God, Creator, Redeemer and Sanctifier.
