Bwahahahahahaaaa! *snerk*

I have a well-developed sense of the absurd.

I think, maybe, it's a gift of the Holy Spirit.

Why else would I be pausing every few minutes to have myself a good giggle over the election of Katharine Jefferts Schori as Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States of America?

I was just saying to myself last night that the election was probably going to go in a direction that no one in the blogosphere would see coming. Heck, *I* didn't see it coming, I thought that the cute little Bishop Francisco Duque-Gomez from Colombia would be elected, and I kinda liked him.

It's just the way that the Holy Spirit, in my experience, likes to operate. The Holy Spirit has this annoying habit of backing the underdog.

God bless +Jefferts Schori as she prepares to lead this wacky, wild, wooly bunch into the world.



Heeeee. Our Presiding Bishop is a GIRL!

Congratulations!!! I freely admit one of the greatest temptations I have for joining the Anglican communion is that my local bishop here is a woman. What great joy for you to see a woman as your presiding bishop.

Mazel tov!

This is so freaking cool. Everyone on the blogs kept writing her off as fairly unlikely, so I didn't even hope this would happen. So, so cool.
