TEC GC 2012: Maybe We're Just Nuts?

Jul 20, 2012 | Posted by: Joe DeCaro | Full story: www.virtueonline.org

Dr. Samuel Johnson the famous British writer observed that people do not need to be taught as much as they need to be reminded. Perhaps this is the reason that whatever comes out of The General Convention of The Episcopal Church (even the good things) seems irritating ...

What are the results from the fifteen million dollars plus spent on this year's convention? Same sex trial liturgies approved, to the surprise of no one, and barriers are now removed for employing and ordaining the transgendered. No wonder the reaction from the world is a laugh when it is not a yawn. After thirty years as a parish priest I cannot claim to have seen it all but transgender issue in the parish is one I escaped. Perhaps it is easier to proclaim this a victory rather than deal with the deterioration of our denomination ...

The above comments are living proof that the liberals are only interested in the money, endowments, and property of conservative TEC churches. They are grinning like the cat that ate the canary as they waste the money of those who love(d) God's Word on their the liberal agenda that is destroying TEC. Those on the outside watching can only say, "Babylon the great has fallen!"

MW, I am thankful for your unique and properly guaged perspectives.
Getting to the right paths in the pursuit of a living understanding, where the Holy Spirit provides unspoken and yet undeniable encouragements, is sometimes like playing pinball.
You get bounced around until, every now and then, you get a flipper in the butt that sends you toward ringing the bells and racking up the points!
Let's hope that T McCabe's flipper will send both Joe and George on their way to a solid score, before they have to go back into the shooter's slot for another attempt at getting past the blocks for the right kind of points!
A little body english works. Yet, the fundamentalist/literalist won't be satisfied until he causes a "Tilt!" But, by then, it's too much, too late, and he loses his turn.
Rev. Ken
Amen!

God works in mysterious ways.

Love the pin ball.....

And how does one follow Jewish ceremonial law when there's no longer a Temple?
Another gold star for asking a good question!

Answer:

You don't need to worry about it since you are not a out of work member of the Levi tribe.

As a Christian WE don't worry about it as Jesus told us WE are the temple housing the living God.

Why did Jesus say the Temple veil would be torn in two?

That veil separated God from the people.

Thanks to our Messiah THERE IS NO SEPARATION!

GOOD NEWS, joie, GOOD NEWS!!

And there you have it! The Real Gospel.

No book. No pile of rocks. No smell of the Ritual Bar-B-Que that is supposed to make everybody good for the year.

Just the laying forth of the welcome mat.

Now, go take a shower and get some Sunday-Go-To-Meetin' clothes on.

I'm not "worried" about it, and your lame answer doesn't even deserve a bronze star.
