To the Good People of the Diocese of Olympia and those beyond that wish to join our Lenten conversation,

By now I hope you have heard of the Lenten Book Selection for 2013 which begins this Wednesday.   Our selection is People of the Way: Renewing Episcopal Identity by Dwight J. Zscheile.  Below are two links to videos where he introduces and talks a bit about why he wrote the book, and his hopes for the church in doing so.  I commend these to you.  Both links are the same interview, the first being about 4 minutes, and the second the full interview at about 8 minutes.  I found this very helpful.

Dwight J. Zscheile: People of the Way  4 minutes

Dwight J. Zscheile: People of the Way  8 minutes

If you would like to join the conversation beyond your groups or your individual reading please see my blog at

As the season after Epiphany comes to an end, and Lent begins, blessings to each and every one of you.
