Where was I today?

Attending the ordination of a new Episcopal bishop- that's where! It was an amazing, remarkable and beautiful ceremony that doesn't happen very often; we've only had 11 Episcopalian bishops in Utah since the first one arrived in 1867. Bishop Hayashi is a very neat man, outgoing, relaxed and cheerful. He actually walked down the row of people carrying in the banners shaking hands and welcoming each person- myself included, just 5 minutes before the ceremony- a very big ceremony for him mind you!

And speaking of banners, if you watch the video at the KSL link- it's not apparently embeddable, at the 30 second point you will see the St. Peter's banner, carried by this humble scribe. You can't see me but it was me carrying the banner in the initial processesion!

I'm so pleased that Rev. Hayashi is our new bishop. I think he is going to be a real spark plug for our diocese and I'm looking forward to his success. I'm so pleased to have been a part of today's celebration.
