Cartoons: cover-ups, mindful prayer, and playing nice...

To cover up is futile, or was "To resist is futile",
Locutus in Star Trek: Next Generation. Same principle applies...

And I know we have heard some wise person say to us at some point,
"Be careful what you pray for." I suppose it applies in all sorts of cases...

And, of course, there had to be a cartoon about the election
of +Katharine Jefferts Schori.

Tacky as it was, the former ++George Carey's son, Andrew,
made the following astute observation:

"We found out in the Church of England that when some evangelicals
attacked the appointment of Dr Rowan Williams because of previously
held views that this backfired spectacularly on them. The first response
of network and AAC leaders, in my view, should be that of welcome,
prayer and a desire to meet with her. The rough stuff can come later."

Know of a good Episcopal or churchy cartoon? Let me know and I will share it with the Communion unless, of course, the manner of life of the cartoon challenges someone somewhere. Oh what the heck, I'll share it anyway. How can we know if we have courage unless we are willing to take a risk?
