The first 3 hours of Saturday morning were at a Standing Committee meeeting on Skype. I am proud of this group first of all for its sound stewadship of diocesan funds by meeting on line instead of spending the money on travel.
I was again struck by how faithful, competent, insightful, and sagacious our leadership is in this Diocese. Not all bishops are so blessed. I am truly grateful.
The SC tended to all sorts of business matters like approving a $25,000 loan at 2% to St. Timothy's for a desperately needed heat pump. They approved ordinations and did all the required canonical stuff. They surveyed the doings of the diocese, reveiewed the finances, and did all those things it is so much easier not to think about. I am glad they do.
