Heh – thanks but no.

But I would be grateful for your prayers for everyone on the nominating slate and for our parishes as the diocese does its discernment.

I’ve got a CafePress account so if you want, I can work up some Knisely 2012 bumper stickers, buttons, fridge magnets, that kind of thing.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
