Some of you have known me, internet-wise, for close to 10 years. We first started meeting on the Via Media site and at Father Jake's, discussing Bp Gene Robinson, the problems in Dio San Joaquin, and the conservative sabre-rattling.
We moved over here to FoJ in July 2008, where mine has been the main voice, all of us noting the irony of me being the tame atheist of the liberal Episco-blogosphere, busy proselytizing my wife on your behalf. And here I've been ever since, opining on The Episcopal Church's business, discussing politics, and equality.
Meanwhile, the proselytizing worked! My wife BP started swimming the Thames in 2009, finally pulled herself ashore in 2010, and followed a new-found calling into a ministry of service at St Paul's Cathedral, San Diego: Acolyte. Thurifer. Verger.
And on Sunday, she was installed by the Dean as Head Verger of the Cathedral.
I am so very proud of her! And proud to know you people, who have supported us both along the way.
