Coming on the heels of the one-two punch of the ABofC's "rebuke" letter and the PB's "smackdown" response, this update from the Episcopal Newsline makes VERY interesting reading ... one hopes there will be "film at eleven!"

"But the people have not returned to him who struck them, nor have they sought the LORD Almighty. So the LORD will cut off from Israel both head and tail, both palm branch and reed in a single day;.... those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray..."isaiah 9.

Lots of back-patting I imagine is in order today.... yet, be honest... a hollow victory?

You [Bible rejecting people] successfully[?] have forced your human will on the once faithful, Epsicopal Church.

You are no longer a Congregation of Jesus Christ. ['Congregation' in Hebrew means -- those that follow the Staff/rod/goad].

Only God knows the outcome, and the consequences.... Our God is a Just God. -- He can only bring Judgment to this World. He will come again to Judge.

Put your Hope in Jesus. There is always Hope, for Our God is Merciful for all who humble themselves & turn around.

"Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.' isaiah 9.

Sometimes it feels like watching a soap opera, but only it's exciting and dramatic.

LG ... actually pretty good with the God being the ultimate judge thing ... particularly in light of Matthew 25:40

According to news reports, +++Rowan purported to tell ++KJS that she could not wear her mitre at Southwark, so she carried it instead. As to this decision, +++Rowan displays an appalling lack of moral character and sensitivity to ++KJS and TEC. The message was clear: he did not recognize her as a fellow bishop. This is totally unacceptable. The proper response should have been to defy him and wear the mitre anyway, and tell +++Rowan where to get off.

Where is the Christian humility that we need in a Church Leader?.... KJS carrying her mitre down the isle shows only her lack of humility...

Has she prayerfully meditated at all on the things that she came up against?

And why does she set her self above & apart from lay people?

She has a impenetrable stone wall around her.... and a dragon infested mote as well.
