Bp. Howe on the first day of Lambeth

Excerpt from Bishop Howe's letter to his clergy regarding the first day of Lambeth:

But the process was asinine. First of all, why combine five Bible Study groups, if you are then going to sub-divide them into four groups? Secondly, what is the point of this discussion of a document we are seeing for the first time? It seemed more appropriate to a junior high Confirmation Class than to a world-wide gathering of Anglican Bishops. And thirdly, why in the world were we having these conversations in the same room at the same time? (At a cost of approximately $8 million just for the Bishops' part of the Conference!)

I can't believe all this money is spent for Bishops to go to England and experience the equivilant of Group sunday school curriculum -- what is this, episcopal VBS? Jeesh!
