More on the library

I had forgotten that Catherine had been appointed the "Church Librarian," and it had somehow escaped me that she volunteers in the King County (Seattle and environs) Library System, which I believe is one of the foremost library systems in the country. This certainly explains the professional presentation.

A major part of the collection came from our Rector of some 19 years, Fr. Daniel Leen (R.I.P.). Some new additions:

Anglican Spirituality, and other works of a more general interest
The Doors of the Sea: Where was God in the Tsunami? by Orthodox theologian David Bentley Hart
Same Sex Affection, Holiness, and Ordination: A Response to [ECUSA] Presiding Bishop Frank T. Griswold, by the Rev. Dr. Peter Toon
The Last Word, by the Anglican Bishop of Durham and pre-eminent Scripture scholar, N.T. Wright
Love Came Down: Anglican Readings for Advent & Christmas, edited by Christopher Webber
