The Guest of Honor
Lookie here! Bonnie Anderson, President of the House of Deputies, spoke recently at the Church of Saint John the Baptist in Lodi, California. Saint John's is one of the few parishes in the Diocese of San Joaquin that voted against fleeing ECUSA and the purpose of her visit was to give a pep talk to the many graybeards of that congregation and to speak to the folly of the decision of the vast majority of that diocese to fly the coop. Well, the leader of the jailbreak, as you may know, is His Grace, the Rt. Rev'd John-David Schofield and that is he in the picture above, in purple, sitting in the front row. According to the Rev'd Daniel Martins who attended, +Schofield was there from "start to finish" and said not a word. A good sport, wouldn't you say? I wonder if his counterparts on the other side would be so game.
