My pre General Convention thoughts…

Today my bishop sent out 1 email messege to all on the mailing list concerning certain initiatives to be voted upin at General Convention 2012. ( Gee, guess which ones? ) All I can say at this point is that I am proud to be an Episcopalian and stand 100 percent behind my bishop.

I am really not at liberty to discuss General Convention 2012, as I am not a delegate nor do I know anything other than what my bishop stated in his email blurb.

One of the wisest priests I know said that we Anglicans need to remember that we can often find God’s Presence whilst “living in tension”. Maybe its due in part to my ethnic heritage ( my mother is Jewish) but I seeno problem coexisting peacefully with those who are different than myself.

But at the same time, we need to be careful not to become so embattled in fighting “those —– liberals or “the —- conservatives” that we forget to be Christ’s hands &feet here and now.

    I think we need to realize that as followers of Christ we can not deny love to anyone who is also being loving to others even when we find it uncomfortable. I hopef this makes sense. Maybe is a question of what would Jesus do.

      Nancy….that is a good , succinct reply to my question. I agree that as a Church, we are called to bring loving-kindness to all who seek Christ.
