On the Bishop's blog, Signs of God's Grace:

Last week I engaged in a Mutual Ministry Review (MMR). Actually, it began a month ago when the Rev. Gay Jennings, President of the House of Deputies for the Episcopal Church, and a long-time consultant with dioceses across the church, came and spent two days having conversations with leaders from around the Diocese of Newark. She talked with 55 people – 23 clergy, 18 laypeople and 14 members of the Episcopal House staff. Some conversations were in groups – the Standing Committee, Trustees, steering committee of Diocesan Council; but most were one-on-ones.

"How do we sing the Lord’s song in a foreign land?" That is a question, if not a lament, that comes out of Psalm 137. Reflections on that question were provided daily by my colleagues at our recently concluded House of Bishops meeting in Texas.

Ash Wednesday was a long day for many in the church. For me, it began in Liberia, where I had spent a week with leaders of the Episcopal Church in that country; and ended in New Jersey – where I spent a few hours outside, and then inside, the Newark train station administering ashes.
