The Deaconry Begins Anew

As scribbled on here the other day, Bishop Robert Carlson ordained the diocese of Saginaw's first "permoid" in a quarter-century yesterday.

As a friend with midland ties approvingly said of Carlson's homily, "there's nothing in it that makes one think this man was ordained to be some kind of soldier in a holy war."

Which is why he's respected by people of good will across factions.
