GC2009 Yin & Yang

Going through GC photos today -- toward putting together my adult ed program for Sunday here at All Saints Church -- these two of newly elected to Executive Council/Deputy from Fort Worth Katie Sherrod leaped out at me as exemplars of the yin-and-yang of the exhaustion and exhiliaration that make up an Episcopal General Convention!



Brad ... before I post your comment, here's some more info on the amazing Katie Sherrod:

I've never met Katie, so I only know her from her work, from the fine thngs other folks say about her and most particularly from the resolute but radiant stand she's taken in the course of recent events in Fort Worth, yet
at the news of her election to the Executive Council I let out an audible cheer here in Montreal.

THIS is wonderful, hope-filled news.
Katie is wonderful news, and a living blessing for the Church.
Go Katie!
