The diocese of Vermont in the US-based Episcopal Church has acquired a solar array farm at its headquarters in Rock Point, Burlington for $269,700.
The solar cells will provide enough energy to power the diocesan
offices, the Rock Point school, the Bishop Booth Conference
Centre, and the bishop’s house.
Additional electricity generated by the
farm will provide an annual estimated income of $40,000.
Something to think about in sunny South Australia!

The Chi is the one that looks like an X. In the Greek alphabet it represents two letters, CH.
The Rho is the one that looks like a P. In the Greek alphabet it is R.
Together, the letters represent CHR, the first letters of the word CHRIST.
The Chi Rho is a Christogram - a combination of letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ.
You will see Christograms in icons and in religious buildings, clothing and furnishings.
The Chi Rho is a common symbol and because it is compact, you will see it on quite small things like a chalice, a lapel pin or a pyx (a small box for communion wafers and a terrific Scrabble word).
Keep an eye out for this symbol next time you are in St Mary Magdalene’s.
