Well, I’m back from an invigorating week in New Orleans, picking brains and sharing stories with other intrepid church mavericks from around the country.¬† Transmission even got a nice mention in Episcopal Life:
“Trying to lead a new community can be confusing,” said Isaac Everett, of the Diocese of New York. “So finding others is really invaluable.”
Everett is co-founder of Transmission, an emerging liturgical community in New York City.
It’s great that they gave us link, although I wish that I came off as a little less clueless.¬† Oh, well, you can never control what the press will right about you and, in all honesty, I can be more than a little clueless at times.
In any case, I have all kinds of ideas I want to share with the group, and I think we’re overdue for a “future of Transmission” talk, anyway, so maybe we can discuss on Wednesday.¬† Bowie was at the conference, too, so I’m sure she’ll have lots to contribute.
Now I’m off to the Congregational Church of New Canaan to perform in a bibliodrama in which Cain’s wife takes Eve to weekend spa getaway in order to figure out why Cain is tormented with nightmares.¬† No, I’m not making this up…

This Wednesday, the 29th, we’ll gather around the new piano in Bowie’s apartment for a marathon psalm reading and antiphon signing session, testing out the antiphons Isaac has been working on for the Emerging Psalter. ¬†Readers and singers and knitters and listeners all welcome.
Bowie will be preparing a home-cooked autumnal meal, but folks are welcome to bring drinks and treats!
