The trouble I have in mind today, however, is not that faced by American society, but that which faces The Episcopal Church USA. On this day (March 25) in 1783, orphaned Anglican clergy elected Samuel Seabury the first American Bishop – the first time a bishop had been elected in the history of Anglicanism. The Episcopal Church would be catholic, protestant and Anglican all at once, but without the interference of either monarch or pope.

How far can we follow Jesus today? Perhaps not as far as we’d aspire to, but we can still offer Christ our presence and our patience at the foot of the cross.
