Greetings from Quito

I am blogging in Quito. Can you believe this? They have internet cafes everywhere, even in working class or poorer areas. Quito is an exciting place, very alive and colorful. I´m staying with a family in a working class neighborhood. They are very gracious. One young man, Miguel know a good bit of English and is helping me out. I will have a lot more to write when I get back but most now be on my way. Chow!

A New Year, a New Beginning

A new year, a new beginning. I'm really feeling that inside today. Thanks be to God!

Two links of note for the new year:

The Archbishop of Canterbury's New Years message - Take care of the earth and each other! Text of his message is here

BBC Interview with Katharine Jefferts Schori. Katharine,"unrepentant on gay clergy" tells it like it is to the Anglican Communion, tells it in truth, with grace and clarity.
