But because bishop is an ordination in the first instance, I believe that's why we have the tradition of continuing to call ex-bishops by the honorific "bishop," but it's a tradition and is certainly not required. But because of this, when I talk to Mark privately that's what I call him -- we're on a first-name basis from long before he was called to be bishop. But if other members are around, I call him "Bishop Gregson." Likewise my boss, whose first name is Mel. And since working for him, that's what I always call him, but when he was in the stake presidency, in the presence of other members (even my own family) I'd always address him as Pres. Wong. Likewise with Tom Matkin. We're coming down to southern Alberta before Christmas. If we were to invite Tom to my brother's or my Dad's place, I'd call him Pres. Matkin. Likewise before his family. Only in private or here on the list would I call him Tom.

Schindler Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada -- Gateway to the Boreal Parkland “We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars” Note: This communication represents the informal personal views of the author solely; its contents do not necessarily reflect those of the author’s employer, nor those of any organization with which the author may be associated. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /// ZION LIST CHARTER: Please read it at /// /// http://www.zionsbest.com/charter.html /// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ==^^=============================================================== This email was sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org EASY UNSUBSCRIBE click here: http://topica.com/u/?aaP9AU.bWix1n.YXJjaGl2 Or send an email to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] T O P I C A -- Register now to manage your mail! http://www.topica.com/partner/tag02/register ==^^===============================================================
