I had a very good visit to Richmond last Thursday.
The day was sunny–great for the drive down.
Everyone at Virginia Union University School of Theology was, as normal, gracious but even more ‘sunny.’
Dr. Kinney had more than a few interesting things to say–one that stuck with me is the fact that, if you are involved in the church long enough, you see some cycles–and know that you have to adjust your thinking and action–and realize that questions and issues arise periodically.
I met with Bishop Shannon Johnston of the [Episcopal] Diocese of Virginia.
He was most gracious and welcoming.
I talked with him about what is going on in the Consortium.
And learned from him of his recent trip to the Middle East.
It was a fine day for conversation and learning.
