Brother Causticus Helps Out

Updated 03/25/07

In our haste to deal with the serious issues in the church, we neglected to highlight this development.

An anonymous comment at "Connecticut Bishops Speak" said: "An admirable statement. But surely the Connecticut bishops would like to make it mano a mano? And so they can: eBay Brings ++Rowan to the USA."

Brother Causticus (who casts his gimlet eye upon The Episcopal Majority) is selling a trip for Archbishop Rowan Williams to come to the U.S. to meet with our bishops. As Deacon Andrewes put it at TitusOneTen: "Fate of the Communion Now on eBay." Bidding is fast and furious, and the auction ends on March 29.

Update 03/25/07: When we last checked the auction last night, over 30 bids had been placed, with a high bid of $433. Most of the bidders we knew to be Episcopalians much involved in the blogosphere or official circles; they knew what they were (and weren't) bidding on. Alas, eBay has no sense of humor: as of Sunday morning, the eBay auction is gone. But the discussion -- and the text from and rationale for the eBay auction -- lingers on at Brother Causticus' site.
