Anglican Anniversary

21 years ago on this date, former Bishop of Iowa Walter Righter (a.k.a. Number Seven) placed his hands on my head and received me into the Episcopal Church. I remember an attack of nerves as I walked to the front of the Cathedral in Davenport and knelt before the bishop. On the way back to my seat, though, I was tremendously happy. Joy and lightness wrapped a different color around the day. If someone had told me then that I'd be a seminarian 20 years later, I'm not sure that I'd have been entirely surprised.
