Overseas Bishops' Dinner - Diocese of Washington

The Church Periodical Club sponsored its triennial dinner for bishops from other countries. I will write more about it tomorrow, but just wanted to mention that there were bishops from the Middle East, Tanzania, Uganda, Central Africa, Brazil and Mexico, as well as bishops from the many countries that you might not think of when you see the abbreviaiton ECUSA, including Ecuador, Venezuela and Panama. Neither the notion that the Episcopal Church is isolated within the Anglican Communion, or that left to itself would be nothing more than a "northern sect" survive an evening like this one.
