One more link: the Bishop of Central Florida, John Howe, who is known for being –if you want to use the not so helpful terms “liberal” and “conservative”— very conservative, also came out with a good thoughtful statement. Worth a look! It will surprise some.
(Lord, have mercy though; I hope it is his editor and not he who doesn’t know the difference between it’s and its. Professor Jane is not amused.)
The link comes from the Titus One:Nine blog, where you will see, if you have the stomach and the time, that the comments responding to Bishop Howe’s pastoral letter are not quite as irenic as Bishop Howe’s statement.
Needless to say, the Episcopal blogosphere and several major newspapers are busy analyzing, dissecting, and speculating.
Meanwhile, I spent the day with both church- and Guilford-related matters of race, history, truth-telling, reconciliation, and related questions in the American South.
