Will Vermont Episcopalians fast from justice?
There are about 9,000 Episcopalians in the Diocese of Vermont. Ashley Matthews interviewed three of them for a front page story in today's Burlington Free Press -- SHELBURNE -- Controversy over homosexuals in the church might be shaking the relationship between the U.S. Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion, but churches in Vermont's fourth-largest religious denomination are carrying on with faithful lives and Sunday morning services.
I've written my Bishop and the clergy at St Paul's Cathedral in Burlington, but have only received a reply from one of them.
I was blown away by Rev'd Ed Bacon's sermon at All Saints', Pasadena last Sunday, February 25. He says just about everything that I would say about about Tanzania and the demands of the Anglican Primates. Click Choosing Life-Giving Power Over Destructive Power for the video.
