Episcopal Life Online: "Anglican primates, international guests called to consider economic justice at Nixon Library dinner"

By Pat McCaughan, The Episcopal News

Bishop J. Jon Bruno of the Diocese of Los Angeles welcomed primates of the Anglican Communion, local and international guests and volunteer General Convention supervisors July 9 to a special appreciation dinner at the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California.

"We see hands of healing and the presence of the holy in this world and especially in this diocese, and as you know we do things a little differently in the Diocese of Los Angeles," Bruno told the gathering, amid laughter and applause. "We've learned from our Middle Eastern sisters and brothers to do hospitality beyond expectation. That is to say, if we have something, it belongs to you."

He noted the presence of Anglican partners from across the globe -- places such as Pakistan, Japan, the Congo, Canada, Australia and many others.

Also welcomed were Dr. Henry T. Nicholas, founder of the Broadcom Co., representatives of Habitat for Humanity, and Harvard University economist Richard Parker, who addressed the gathering.
