Bishop Gene Robinson to visit Glasgow

I was absolutely delighted to see that Bishop Gene Robinson, the Bishop of New Hampshire, is going to be visiting Scotland in August to preach at St Mary's Cathedral in Glasgow. Bishop Robinson is the only Bishop not to have been invited to the forthcoming Lambeth Conference with the Archbishop of Canterbury. He is the only Bishop to acknowledge that he is living in a gay relationship.

I am glad that he is going to receive a warm welcome here in Scotland. I know Kelvin Holdsworth, the Provost of St Mary's - he is one of the warmest, most genuine, wisest and most tolerant people I have ever met. It is hardly surprising that the services at St Mary's are so packed that they run out of consecrated communion hosts. Just out of interest, I wonder what happens then.....

*puts on Lay Eucharistic Minister hat* There's a shortened procedure for consecrating more without having to go through the entire Eucharistic prayer again - just a sentence or two.

Thanks for that - much appreciated.

* Puts on a Server's hat

Without giving too many Server's secrets away, the Servers will do a head count prior to the offertory and from this the appropriate quantity of bread and wine required will be placed on the Nave Altar for consecration.
