"Liberal picked to lead Canadian Anglicans" was the breaking news Globe and Mail headline yesterday. Today's is "Anglicans pick trailblazer to lead flock" in the same paper.

Interesting choice of words, IMHO. But to me a trailblazer is one who can be prophetic, iconoclastic, in the forefront (sp?) and at the same time true to deeply held values.

Just thought I'd throw that in.

Happy Pentecost to all from the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont, USA.
