The conflict with South Carolina is in South Carolina

This is not Bishops Jefferts Schori and Lawrence on a collision course. It is Lawrence and an inner circle of leaders who, with wide support from a group of diocesan clergy, who have set on a course that a handful of faithful clergy and lay Episcopalians are trying to avert using the only tools they have.

“My child, do not busy yourself…”

Today when I read one particular phrase from Ecclesiasticus, it jumped out at me enough for me to search to see if I had quoted it and commented on it previously: “My child, do not busy yourself with many matters; if you multiply activities, you will not be held blameless.” (11:10) I searched that phrase in my Journal. I got some hits.
