After having somewhat gathered the forces of my concentration over the weekend, I had a very full day today tackling the backed-up papers that I’d been ignoring while I worked on my lecture from last week. Consequently, I don’t have anything particular left over to say here today.
I devoted a lot of my spare cycles to thinking about (a) clerical attire, when I wear it and why, in response to a question from Francis Watson, and (b) how I will have to think about my orders if any of a variety of foreseeable outcomes arises relative to the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Communion, and the Roman Catholic Church. Short answer: I’m not inclined to try to subsist in a national Protestant church, which seems likely to portend headaches.

Okay, there’s no way you can leave a tantalizing comment like that under B just hanging and get away with it… I’d really like to hear your thoughts on this especially as it relates to being a seminary professor as well as a priest. Please post more when you have a moment!
Same for a). What are your thoughts on the clerical attire? I ask because some critical comments on another forum kept me awake much of the night!
As for me, I am pondering a few years at Duke as I wait for, contemplate, wonder about my own clerical attire – or lack thereof. Stanley Hauerwas makes me happy (well, his writing does – never met the man).
