The Latest Campaign
Convention for the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska begins today. The bishop's budget has zeroed out spending for youth. I am not a happy camper! As well, we are having resolutions introduced that STILL bring up the issue of gay clergy and leadership. Do you know how sick I am of having to re-hash who can wear what? Well, sick enough to foment dissent and revolution. In a few hours folks at convention will be talking about 5% of the diocesean budget for growing our youth ministry. YIPPY!!!! Let's change the conversation and refocus on ministry.
Also, it is now snowing up here. The girls had to go out barefoot and dance in it. Now they are asking for hot water bottles.
