From Susan Russell:

Ten years ago today, on a drippy New Hampshire afternoon in a hockey arena-turned-cathedral, V. Gene Robinson was consecrated the 9th Bishop of New Hampshire — and the paradigm shifted and the arc of history bent a little closer to justice and … well — you fill in the blank.

If you were there, what do you remember?

If you weren’t, what do YOU remember?

And either way — how do you think the world and the church are different because of what happened on November 2, 2003?

And what — if any — message to you have for Bishop Robinson on this anniversary?

I remember the event and my feelings. I remember straining long, very long, distance for news, for the play-by-play...it seemed like some kind of goal needed to be achieved, to be leaped to but with no end run possible...the moment of consecration left me breathless. When *it* was done, his goal, his calling, the Episcopal score finally felt more even, more honest, more lifted up with integrity.

WE/HE are finally amongst the acknowledged full-fledged winners...of course, The Rt. Reverend Gene Robinson put US in the Hall of Fame.

The rest is history, and I thank you Bishop Gene.

"Only God can judge ya" as the noted theological ethicist Miley Cyrus declares ;-/ . . .

. . . but the episcopacy of the Right Rev V. Gene Robinson appears to have been an unqualified GRACE-FILLED success.

Thank you, +Gene!
