Our parish hosts a Saturday night Agape feast after the Easter Vigil. This year we roasted 6 lambs with rosemary and anchovy paste, 100 pounds of pork in dill, and 100 pounds of chicken in sumac and nutmeg, besides about 500 slices of baklava, a sea of grape leaves, enough fava beans and artichokes to keep Hannibal Lector full (and the livers of the those same lambs alongside, with sumac and onions, in case he showed up with Chianti). In short, a Greek festival for 300 in a parish with only one Greek parishioner, whose maiden name is "Anestis." Christ is risen—Khristos anesti!

What were they thinking?
That the Bishop of Kaduna could be appointed as Secretary General of the Anglican Communion while being decidedly anti GLBT is beyond my ability to understand. That the people responsible for his appointment could not have known this is beyond my ability to understand. That it is still considered acceptable for this to happen is beyond my ability to understand. This time, but there will be others, GLBT people are sacrificed, it seems, on the altar of improved Christian/Muslim relations. Even during - and perhaps most especially - the joy of the Lord's resurrection, it is tragic and sad.
