“Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." St. John 13:34-35
It is good to be back with you this morning. As some of you will know, I have been in central Africa for the last few weeks. I have spent a little of my time watching magnificent wild animals, and a little of it eating delicious wild animals, and a little of it explaining to bewildered Zambian taxi cab drivers how it can possibly be that Donald Trump is doing so well in the primaries.
But most of my time has been spent attending and writing stories about an important meeting of the worldwide Anglican Communion. I was sent to Africa as a reporter for The Living Church, a magazine and website that serves the Episcopal Church, to report on the meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council that was being held in the Cathedral in Lusaka, Zambia. If you want to read a few of my articles that summarized what was happening, you find them on The Living Church website.
