THOSE CUNNING AMERICANS

From THE STAR TRIBUNE:

The Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Minneapolis, has been elected bishop of the Diocese of Washington. Budde was elected out of a field of five nominees. The election was held Saturday during a special convention at Washington National Cathedral.

COMMENT: Nice try, you lot. But I don't think you'll get away with it for long. The haters only have to look at the photograph to work out that Bishop Edgar is not a man.

  1. She’s very, very impressive. When I was minister of music at Church of St. Clement in Alexandria, Virginia (back in the mid/late 80s), Mariann Budde served there for her seminary internship. She was an outstanding preacher even then and had great focus and poise. It was clear that she was going places. I do hope she lives up to her promise.

  2. What a Budde we have in Jesus! [Yup, that’s how it’s pronounced . . . though, MP, I don’t know if she can “spare a dime” ;-/]

    God bless Bishop-Elect Budde’s ministry in DioDC…
