New website for the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina

The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina has a new website. They offer “Welcome” on their homepage:

The Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina is continuing. Our Diocese is reorganizing with renewed dedication to carry forward the work of our Lord Jesus Christ, just as prior generations have done since 1789. We have much to do and many challenges to meet, but we are confident that by moving forward together in unity and faith, with God’s help, we will flourish.

Your participation in this new ministry is encouraged. The Episcopal Church in South Carolina always welcomes you!

The powerful words of a beloved bishop of our Diocese speak poignantly to us now in this time of our rebuilding:

“We should strive for unity, not uniformity. Uniformity is mechanical, barren, unfruitful, and unprofitable. Unity is organic, living, and capable of endless growth. If we are to be truly catholic, as Christ himself is catholic, then we must have a church broad enough to embrace within its communion every living human soul.”

– The Right Reverend William Alexander Guerry (1861-1928)

The Presiding Bishop’s Pastoral Letter, as well as letters of support from the Bishop of East Carolina (the Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel, III), and The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth also appear on the front page, along with an Advent message.

In addition to the components that most Diocesan sites have, South Carolina has a “FAQ and Resources” section to help people understand what has happened there, and the choices parishes and individual Episcopalians have concerning the Episcopal Church.

The Official Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina has been hard at work! The website has been updated and is amazing. We need to spread the good news, both of Christ's Gospel and the EDOSC.

The new web address is

episcopalsc.org

This web site is an excellent source for the Episcopalians in the low country. Too, it is a bright, positive, morale lift to the downtroden churchpeople there. For many years the diocesan leadership has attacked, maligned, derided and opposed the Episcopal church leaving her defenders ignored or denounced as heretics (Bishop Lawrence called his local opponents this in a meeting I attended). Try as they miht, the anti-Episcopal group could not put out the light, however, thanks to The Episcopal Forum of South Carolina and Steve Skardon at scepiscopalians.com. Seeing what was coming, the Episcopalians got prepared and moved to reorganize the diocese as soon as the Lawrence faction disassociated from TEC. This has been most helpful to the Episcopalians and to the many wavering clergy and local churches. In fact, only 38% of the SC clergy have endorsed Lawrence and about half the local churches. There is a substantial ongoing Episcopal diocese for which I am proud and grateful.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
