"[M]ust reading for anyone still in TEC"

Transfigurations points out an article written by one RA Livingston and posted to Episcopal Majority.

I thought you might find it interesting reading concerning the fiasco we observe within the Anglican family, particularly the TEo and its orthodox siblings.

Far from being “inclusive,” the ruling group is intent on seeing that those who actively oppose it or attempt to leave are promptly and severely dealt with.

In other words, if you don't like it here, just "Shut Up and Sit Down!"

A huge change now taking place in our church is the de facto elevation of the Presiding Bishop to the position of Archbishop and Metropolitan; i.e. the direct boss of our diocesan bishops and the key person in determining the course of the national church.

~~~

As the time of General Convention 2009 draws near, the church is hemorrhaging both money and members. While most dioceses are cutting programs and staff, the Presiding Bishop has just augmented her legal staff with a personal litigation attorney. Four Dioceses have left TEC to affiliate temporarily with other Anglican Provinces and the church is losing 1,000 members a week.

~~~

There have been more bishops and clergy deposed, or involuntarily removed from the ranks of the Church, in the two-and-a-half years of her term than at any other time in its four-hundred-year history.



And then there is this final shot:

What Can You Do?

What can individual parishioners do? Here are some practical suggestions:
1. Find out where your money is going. . . .
2. Give no more money for lawsuits. . . . .
3. Become involved at the local level. . . .
4. Do not vote for convention deputies who want to see the lawsuits continue. . . . .
5. Become involved yourself . . .

Finally, spread the word! Get this information into the hands of as many of your fellow parishioners as possible. There are many links in this article to useful information.

Please, go read it all and then act as you see fit.

God Bless Ya'll !
