"Every time Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori dons her personalized vestments, there's a vision of sunrise.
Colors of the "new dawn," cited so often by the prophet Isaiah, are sewn into her personalized mantle and bishop's hat — an orange glow rises from a green hem to a dawn-blue band below purple heavens.
Jefferts Schori herself stands for a new day in her church:"
It really is all about clothes. Say whatever you want about the Millennium Goals or taking God out of a small box (and putting him in even smaller one) but at the end of the day, if your vestments themselves signal a ‘new dawn’, ‘a new day’ in the church, then essentially we are looking at a ‘divinization’ of KJS herself. KJS is the center of this ‘new dawn’. She whirls and twirls her way through the church, diffusing light, confusing theology, remaking the great reality of God into herself. This is no mere heresy, this is a cohesive, cogent alternative religion with a god at its center dressed in the colors of the sky.
