The Bishop's Letters
Articles from July 2011
Peggy and I just finished performing in “Fiddler on the Roof,” performed at Truro to wildly enthusiastic crowds and three sold out performances. It was a lot of fun! Peggy was Golda, Tevye’s wife, and I played Lazar Wolf. It was my first foray into acting since high school (which was a very long time ago!) and it proved to be a good experience, although a lot more work than I remembered. After this experience, I think I’ll hang up my acting shoes for a while.
A friend of mine stopped me as I was leaving church last week, and asked me, “So now we are part of a new diocese. So what?” Although I was a bit surprised by the question, I realized that it actually made sense. After all, most of us don’t spend all our waking hours thinking about our place in the worldwide Anglican Communion, so some of these issues can feel an awful lot like “inside baseball.” But it actually is worth knowing about.
