"... and good wishes as she"

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jun 20, 2006

Dr. Rowan Williams appears to have nodded off in the midst of his own official reaction to the election of Katharine Jefferts Schori as the next Presiding Bishop of ECUSA -- arguably the drowsiest prose of its kind ever penned. This is the full text:

I send my greetings to Bishop Katharine and she has my prayers and good wishes as she takes up a deeply demanding position at a critical time. She will bring many intellectual and pastoral gifts to her new work, and I am pleased to see the strength of her commitment to mission and to the Millennium Development Goals.

Her election will undoubtedly have an impact on the collegial life of the Anglican Primates; and it also brings into focus some continuing issues in several of our ecumenical dialogues.

We are continuing to pray for the General Convention of the Episcopal Church as it confronts a series of exceptionally difficult choices.

Critical. Impact. Focus. Issues. Choices. Millennium Development Goals. Gifts. Hobbies. Blue Point Siamese ... I'm sorry, I forgot what I was saying just now.
