Bishop Quezada visit to Dallas, October 21-23

Last weekend we had the pleasant visit of Bishop Moses Quezada, coadjutor bishop of the Diocese of the Dominican Republic. Bishop Quezada and his wife Jeannette visited Dallas thanks to an invitation from Bishop Sumner.

The program consisted of a training day for clergy, and a great training day for lay leaders of the Latino communities of our Diocese that was held at the Church of San Francisco de Asis in Dallas.

Bishop Quezada also had the opportunity to accompany the monthly meeting of couples of Christ Church, and Sunday he visit, celebrate and taught at St. Mary's Church in Irving.

Terry Reisner of Waxahachie is a humble person and is surely not looking for such an analogy, but I want to compare him to Jesus! You see I took part in the St. James charity golf scramble in Mabank, and let me tell you, I am a truly dreadful golfer. A harsh slice is one of my good shots!  But no matter - it's all who you know. With Terry on your team, you just use all his shots, and you are bound for glory, as we were. It is its own kind of vicariousness, which lies at the heart of the Christian mystery.

But note my second point: you'd be wrong to think I could have remained in the clubhouse as I sipped tea. We were a team, and I was expected to take my shots, to follow after. I contributed a bit of repartee.  Maybe my bad putts helped him read the green. And celebrating at the end is its own role too. Even the redeemed have to travel the course. (The great New Testament scholar Eduard Schweizer was Swiss and he knew snow - he compared it to following behind a snow-plough and then walking out after being homebound). Keeping the truth of who won clear, and the callings straight, is important to the Christian life too.
