Snapshots of Day One

Here is where the House of Bishops are meeting in New Orleans.

This is in front of the Convention Center, which has been rebuilt after the horrors that occurred there during Katrina.

This is the entrance to the Convention Center where the “Ecumenical Service” was held on Thursday night.

On the platform with Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury. Beside him is Bishop Jenkins, Bishop of Louisiana.

TEC Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefferts Schori, reads the Gospel.

A rousing rendition of “O When the Saints Go Marching In,” by Irvin Mayfield concludes the service.
