I'm off to Natchez for the weekend to attend the 181st Annual Council of the Diocese of Mississippi. In addition to the usual business, my rock/blues band RUBRIXX (comprised of four Episcopal priests) will play for the dinner dance tomorrow night.
"Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in Natchez for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
The Book of Common Prayer, p. 818
