Yesterday the Presiding Bishop welcomed up with words that really resonated with me. Looking to synchronize our heart beats with God's. I like that idea! She went on to point out how important we all are by saying: we cannot be whole if we use only the fingers on the left or right hand. We are 405 clerical and 407 lay deputies from 109 dioceses.
In my committee meeting today we heard from the Episcopal Bishop of Cuba, Bishop Priscilla. Cuba is an extra-provincial Diocese; the Episcopal Church in Cuba.
Yesterday we heard testimony on the Doctrine of Discovery --a means for countries to lay claim on territory. It was used to move natives off their land for the white man's use. We were asked to have our churches to figure out whose land their building occupies and then find out how we got it! The Monroe Doctrine and Manifest Destiny are examples of the Doctrine of Discovery. Look for materials to use in Advent and Lent to use for study.
Today I walked over 3 miles! Everything is mega distance away.
