John, it does not begin with the dateline.

The Day of Judgement starts on 21 MAY 2011 at 6:30 pm Pacific Daylight Saving Time and then begins moving around the world going west in one hour increments. It will not get back around to the majority of us in North America until late in the day Sunday.

So most folks should make sure that they have any business to do wrapped up by 6:00 pm.

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.
