On September 29th 2010 I flew down from Florida in the U.S.A, to Quito in Ecuador. I was there to visit with my Cambridge, MA friends Chris and Trish Morck, and especially to be present to Chris when he was ordained as a Priest in the Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Central Ecuador.
It was a great visit. I have so many memories arising from this, my first visit to South America, and from my encounters with the tiny Episcopal Church in Ecuador.
Now, almost a year later, most, if not all of the Episcopal Church Bishops are meeting in Quito for the regular annual meeting of what we call “The House of Bishops”.
(For historical and financial reasons the two Dioceses in Ecuador are part of the Episcopal Church in the U.S.A.).
How I wish that I could be there to enjoy the beauty and vibrancy of the Ecuadorian culture and countryside!
How I hope that "all them Bishops" will not take themselves too seriously!
