I will be traveling to Rio de Janiero on Tuesday night, returning the following Tuesday morning. I will be preaching at the Church of the Redemptor next Sunday and meeting a number of leaders including the new bishop as we further our companion relationship with that diocese. (Our parish relationship actually slightly predates and parallels the relationship between our diocese and that one.) I will be looking at various projects that might provide a particular focus for that relationship as we continue life together in some sense and which might be a point of engagement for us and also a recipient of funds offered in support pf the millennium development goals. I will report on my return.
