Friday in Canterbury

So here's a view of Canterbury Cathedral down through the High Street ...

...heading toward the cathedral gates which are CLOSELY monitored to keep all but bishops OUT! (A Lambeth Steward -- one of the folks charged with keeping this an orderly gathering -- called it "the bishops on lock-down.")



Here's a shot of a gaggle of them -- bishops, that is -- heading toward the Cathedral this morning ...


... and here's a familiar face ... +Cathy Roskam (Suffragan, New York) with (I think) +Henry Parsley (Diocesan, Alabama) a bit behind on the right.
.
Meanwhile, John continues to make miracles happen via mobile phone at the Communication Centre ...

We were amused by this headline on the church hall bulletin board ...

... while we plug away at typing and formatting and networking ...

... and Katie has staked out her "Don't Mess With Texas" spot!!


And then, miraculously, there was a MOST satisfactory "humming" sound from the far end of the church hall and ...
... VOILA!
.
The prototype of our "Lambeth Witness" news letter emerged from our now-networked, now-printing-happily printer/copier. So all -- for the moment -- is well in Integrity Communication Centre land!

Sigh, even Canterbury can't keep out the Gap and Starbucks.

Thanks for the photos. It's great looking at them to spot familiar faces.

Prayers continue for all of you.

Will we hoi poloi out in cyberspace get to see your daily papers? Hope so.

Love the photos!! I've never been to England so this is a treat to see where everyone is and put faces with names. One suggestion--some people are identified by first names only--could you add last name, too?

The bishop to the left of Bishop Roskam is Dean Wolfe of Kansas
