How could I resist?

The idea, popularized on numerous blogs (practically everywhere I turn today), belongs to Lionel Deimel. His version has delicious simplicity and is easy to grasp in a moment. I had to play with color (don't I always?) and got naughty by inserting some of the English text of the Donation of Pepin and affixing signatures of +Cantuar, +Abuja, +Walsingham, +Kampala, and +Dunelm. This is all for the church history and trivia buffs (and because I cannot resist snark).

Click on Lionel's name to see his original (which he encourages us all to use).

I don't suppose I need to tell any readers here how I feel about the idea of an Anglican covenant.

As a wise bishop from the Global Center said, "We have the Creeds. We have the baptismal covenant. We don't need another covenant." (Perhaps not the exact words in that last sentence, but Madre Caminante or Padre Mickey will correct me.)


Word verification: perters.

Quite so. I was just reading his words in the last day or so on one of our friend's blogs.

You little show off!

Paul said...

Sorry, Maddy. I left sacred employ for the Satanic mills of the business world.

Paul said...

MP, that was a total non sequitur. Another apology. I thought you were taunting me over my computer excesses and did not see which post you were addressing.

I just can't help having fun. (Now, if I really wanted to show off I would have used the Latin text of the donation of Pepin.)
