How interesting that at a time when we have huffing and puffing about the actions taken at General Convention 2009 to include all people in the all the sacraments... the Episcopal Church marks 35 years of ordaining women to the priesthood. It was another time in the history of TEC when actions taken led to much gnashing of teeth and wailing in the wilderness.
Now, we are living through the same sort of nonsense with the Archbishop of Canterbury posing a "two tier" Anglican Communion to appease those who can not accept that in the United States, queers are among the baptized in the pews and could likely be called by God to move from the pew to the pulpit.
Rev. Susan Russell at AN INCH AT A TIME has an excellent retrospective in light of current events.
