Meeting her public

Ninety minutes after her investiture, Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is still standing in the midst of the nave of Washington National Cathedral, greeting well-wishers. The lovely carillon that rang for almost an hour after the Eucharist has ended. The food is all gone at the receptions on the close. In fact just about everybody has cleared out except me and the folks from Episcopal News Service who are working in our conference room. Meanwhile, the sedan that is taking her wherever she is going next is sitting outside the Cathedral. The driver has the motor running, but I don’t think he’s going anywhere anytime soon.
