A quick reflection on woman PB

Sunday later

The election of a woman as the Presiding Bishop has prompted both celebration and wonder. Beside the usual questions -- how will this play in...? One thing I noticed. There were no sad faces among the youth. The kids here were all very excited. How cool! We've got a woman PB, they were saying. This will play well among young people, they are saying, especially for those who think of the church as woefully square and old-mannish.

We passed major legislation in support of MDG (Millennium Development Goals) late in the day.

I mentioned the election to my children as soon as I heard about it. Their response? "A woman Presiding Bishop?" /shrug/ "Why is that a big deal?"

I can't imagine a more encouraging response!
