Comments: more trouble in Philadelphia

Keep all of us -- bishops, committee, clergy and laypeople of DioPA -- in your prayers, dear readers. (I'm thanking God with all my heart that I'm not a delegate to Convention...)

FYI, Simon, the publication is the Philadelphia Inquirer. Only its most disgruntled employees refer it to as the Enquirer .

Whoops, sorry, now fixed, CS. Thanks.

I'm with Christopher, we need your prayers, and of course so does Bishop Bennison. I too am happy to avoid the convention floor this go around. While PA has a tradition of being rather "congregational" in its outlook, it has become more divided than ever.

I was once told that Penn State University was deliberately situated in Happy Valley, under the shadow of Mt. Nitteny, to keep its students safe from the evil city vibes of both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Given the behavior of the Episcopal bishops resident in both places, maybe they were on to something.

Seriously, I keep the good and loyal Episcopalians in Pittsburgh and the long-suffering Episcopalians in Philadelphia in my prayers.
