We broke in Düsseldorf !

Unfortunately, the Anglican Beach Party Mongoose slot car broke in the Düsseldorf race. A wire came un-soldered from the motor. Alas!

Nevertheless, in the spirit of Thingie
camaraderie, I present to you a short film by Chris Bruyninx, a Thingie co-conspirator of ours from Belgium, which features oldish geezers like myself playing with 40-year-old toy cars on the Düsseldorf track. To re-live one's youth is a splendid thing, indeed.

Why She Left ECUSA (Parts 1-4)

Anne Coletta (innocent as doves) is writing a series on why, as a wife and mother, she felt compelled to leave The Episcopal church.

Of course, having recently made that same decision, Anne's story would be compelling to me. But you read it and see what you think. I think her story is pretty typical of the thousands of Episcopalians who are realizing that TEc is anything but Christian!

I believe the Episcopal Church as an institution, based on the words and actions of most of her church leadership and her bishops, has left the Christian faith.

Read Part 1 here ...

Part 2 is here ...

And here is Part 3

So far, she is up to Part 4.
