Father Peter Christensen of Nativity of Our Lord in St Paul is Bishop of Superior
Labels: St. Paul-Minneapolis Interest, Wisconsin
This is absolutely no lie. When Fr. Peter became pastor of Nativity - he can tell you this - I told him he was going to be a bishop one day - and he laughed at me and said that was impossible, etc. Now he is. (Natural dedcution my dear Watson - nothing mystical!) I'm serious though - and Fr. Peter was convinced it couldn't happen.
You better start listening to me Mr. Man! Make fun of me all you want about Aquilla - you and your little dogs too!
Forgot my smiley face and LOL! for that comment.
Ray, I posted some rather disturbing news - I don't know if you should post it or not - here is the link:
For more on Fr. Peter Christensen's nomination, see
"Soon to be: His Eminence, Bishop Peter F. Christensen"
Scroll down a few stories.
So who will be the next pastor at good old Nativity of our Lord?
There certainly are several thousand people concerned and praying about that decision.
I know I am.

I hope you're right, Anon., or otherwise I'm going to have a lot of egg on my face tomorrow morning.
But if you're right, thanks a bunch!
