Nevada Episcopal Bishop Dan Edwards tries his hand at humorous comedy:
So here’s the plan. Instead of redirecting a paltry few million dollars from overhead to mission in our operating budget, let’s make a real adaptive change. First, sell everything. I mean everything — the offices at 815, John the Divine, the Washington Cathedral, All Saints Pasadena — just for starters, then our houses and jet skis. We can keep cars and golf clubs. Nothing radical here. Anglican moderation at every step.
You suck, Edwards!!
Then we all move to Montana — over a million of us — elect the public officials, establish an Anglican cultural enclave, become the regional version of normal, build a huge Cathedral and complex of edifices, then invest the rest of our money in p r and supporting Episcopal Youth Service Corps all over the country. Slowly but surely, plant little Montanas all over the USA.
You’re not funny!!
Now here’s our niche. The LDS already has a lock on genealogy. We cannot compete with that but we can complement it. Instead of a family history library we hire a crack team of psychics and futurists to staff our family future library. People will go to Salt Lake to learn about their ancestors, then on to Helena to learn about their descendants.
Bring out the headliner!! And can I get a frickin’ waitress over here?!!
Finally, we replace Hyfrydol and some of our other boring music with a new theme song. “Turn Me Loose Set Me Free Somewhere In The Middle Of Montana.” Now the scary part: I am on the structure committee for General Convention. Beware of mad men in high places.
Sounds like the crickets like it, Dan.
