The Epsicopal Diocese of San Jaoquin continues to rebuild and renew itself in preparation for the days when we are once again reunited with all our brothers and sisters. The process is slow and the process is difficult at times. We are challenged to think in a way we have never thought before.
Father Paul Colbert led the days work.
The day began with a rousing discussion of what it means to be a part of Remain Episcopal. Marshall Johnston, current president, talked with the 50 or so participants. It was a great day for the Episcopal Church. We blended Rite III (a little known rite as it turned out) with a great three topic discussion day ending with a wonderful Eucharist.

The day included three reflections, as Fr. Colbert described them, Lectio Divinio(?). We used Mark 12:35-44 for three sessions including Gospel based discipleship, becoming example and for example and deeds. The end of the day was focused on the breaking of the bread.
