This is me, following my reception into the Episcopal church. I’m pictured with two others who were received, along with the Bishop of South Dakota, John Tarrant.
Dinner followed the service (and kids’s Xmas pageant). Following dinner, I came in dressed as Saint Nicholas to distribute Xmas presents to all the girls and boys. Kids are too much fun.
As you can see, the beard gave me a bit of problems, not quite full coverage over my own mustache!
