Kate's going to the holy land:
Local leadership of the Episcopal Church of Cuba will welcome Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori to take her seat on its Metropolitan Council February 1 in Havana, and to address its annual Synod meeting February 2-4 in Cardenas.
"I very much look forward to meeting sister and brother Episcopalians in Cuba," said Jefferts Schori, who will also visit the ecumenical seminary, Seminario Evangelico de Teologico, in Matanzas on February 3. "I am eager to learn firsthand about the mission and ministry that is carried out so faithfully in local contexts, notably with excellence in literacy and social services."
Widespread literacy does make it easy to read the "No Food Today" signs. It's not clear whether Kate will get an audience with Fiddy although she'd probably giggle like a schoolgirl if she did. TEC wants every Episcopalian to make the socialist haj.
The visit follows the February 2006 Cuba visit of the 25th Presiding Bishop, Frank Griswold, who with his delegation was received by President Fidel Castro. Following that visit, the Episcopal Churchs Executive Council adopted the following resolution at its November 1215, 2006, meeting in Chicago.
"Resolved, That the Executive Council, meeting in Chicago, IL, November 12-15, 2006, calls for an immediate end to all portions of the United States economic embargo against the Republic of Cuba, particularly revisions to the embargo implemented by the U.S. Department of State in 2004; and be it further
"Resolved, That dioceses and congregations in the Episcopal Church consider the establishment of companion relationships with the Episcopal Church of Cuba in order to help support the IEC spiritually and, where possible, financially; and be it further
"Resolved, That, in order to promote the exchange of religious and political ideals, all members of the Episcopal Church are encouraged to travel to Cuba subject to the availability of licenses from the U.S. government where applicable; and receive delegations from the Episcopal Church of Cuba subject to approval by the U.S. government where applicable; and be it further
"Resolved, That the Episcopal Church recommit itself at all levels to pray for the reconciliation of the United States and the Republic of Cuba, in the Name of the Prince of Peace."
Who's basically been driven completely out of Cuban life ever since Fiddy took over. So Kate should feel right at home.
Has there ever been a more pathetic leftist running a formerly Christian denomination that Madam Schori?
