An announcement from Bonnie Anderson, President of the Episcopal Church House of Deputies

Posted by Kendall Harmon

I write to you for two reasons: to thank you for your support, friendship, prayers, challenges, brilliance and love that has inspired and humbled me during these 6 years and second, to let you know that I do not plan to stand for election as President of the House of Deputies for another term.

The reason I am not seeking re-election is a simple one: I want to spend more time with my family. My husband, Glen, is retired. I want to be with him more. Our amazing son, Justin, lives with us and reminds us every single day, by his very existence, that God is a generous miracle maker.

Read it all.

The PB wins another round. Looks like KJS is one step closer to being Archbishop Kate.

To discern God’s purposes, we must listen to the voices of all of the baptized. This is known as the Aronic leadership model.  Everyone brings some gold and throws it into the fire. Guess what comes out?

In commenting elsewhere on the Holy Spirit - voices of all the baptized quote, I noted that her D.D. must be an honorary degree.

True that. She has 4 of them.

According to Wikipedia (always authoritative), she has the following:
Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa)
- Episcopal Divinity School
- University of the South
Doctor of Canon Law (honoris causa)
- Seabury-Western Theological Seminary
- General Theological Seminary.

Amazingly, Nashotah House and Trinity seem to have overlooked her obvious spiritual gifts.

All DDs are honorary. Earned doctorates in divinity are PhDs and ThDs. Maybe somebody oughtta investigate Nashotah and Trinity!

Not from universities in the United Kingdom. DDs are both earned and honorary.

Okay, so the reality is that she has four honorary degrees (for what, exactly?) and no earned degrees in theology.
