Sunday Service in New York ~

Went to an historical Episcopalian Church on Fifth Avenue for a Sunday service. A woman priest. Her sermon in English: a delight for my ears and heart. Afterwards I spoke with her. Call me Elizabeth, she said, and conversed in such a friendly way. She had recently received her Doctor of Divinity and had just been assigned to this church.

You know, although I am certainly not in favor of women priests, I must say that all the Protestant women of the cloth whom I've met or heard in various ecumenical or burial services, have all been wise, warm, real and utterly dedicated to Him and His. I appreciated it then, I still do.
