Dear Friends -- I am in Augusta, Georgia for the 186th Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia. It is being held at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Walton Way, in the heart of Augusta. Our worship services and the ordination of Transitional Deacons will take place at Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church across the street. Three rows back on the left there is a Seal of the President of the United States and a plaque that says Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower worshiped in that church in that pew.
This place means much to me because it was here that three years ago, on February 5, 2005, I was one of those who were ordained Transitional Deacon. Six months later on August 5, 2005 I was ordained Priest. It's all good.
