This week CLAI (Consejo Latinoamericano de Iglesias or the Latin American Council of Churches) have been meeting in Panamá. This evening the Lovely Mona and I attended a reception for CLAI at the Bishop´s Mansion in Balboa. We had wonderful conversations with folks, and enjoyed meeting Chris Morck, Missionary of TEC in Ecuador, whose blog is here (and has been on our blog roll for a while) and the Most Revd. Mauricio Andrade, Primado of Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil. I thanked the Primado for the statement he released on Monday, and we had a nice conversation. And we all went outside and watched the lunar eclipse. A wonderful evening was had by all.
Here are the photos:
