I am happy to announce that the presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church is an honorary Presby Alien and she has the t-shirt to prove it.
That is Allison Boone presenting our 2011 softball jersey to The Most Reverend Dr. Katherine Jefferts Schori. Allison is our team manager and the daughter of Jerry Boone our coach and pitcher.
Our team is a bit unique in the Johnson City church league. Two congregations, St. John's Episcopal Church of Johnson City and First Presbyterian of Elizabethton make up one team.
Bishop Katherine was in Knoxville to consecrate another bishop, Rev. Richard Westbury, this past Sunday. While that duty was certainly important, it paled in comparison to the receiving of the sacred t-shirt.
I am hoping this will give us the spiritual mojo we need for our first playoff game against Mid-City Fellowship tonight at 6:30 at Winged Deer Park. Come and watch!
