Solidarity letter from the Diocese of Ft Worth to South Carolina

Solidarity letter from the Diocese of Ft Worth to South Carolina

Received from the Diocese of Fort Worth via email:

The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, the Standing Committee, and the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth stand in prayer and solidarity with the Episcopalians of the Diocese of South Carolina as they move through a time of challenge and confusion. We applaud the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori for her pastoral letter reaching out to them.


“We know all too well the pain of schism and the heartbreak of fractured relationships. But we also have experienced God’s amazing grace and in that hope we await reunion and reconciliation with our own sisters and brothers in Christ from whom we are now separated,” Bishop High said.

“It is with that same hope that we, along with the presiding bishop, pray that the laity, clergy and bishop of South Carolina find ways to stay together in The Episcopal Church, honoring one another’s differences with love and respect, while worshiping Jesus Christ our Savior. Scripture tells us that “nothing in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39) Let us take that to heart and strive not to let anything separate us one from the other.”

Signed,

Rayford B. High

Provisional Bishop

Diocese of Fort Worth

Martha Fagley

President, Standing Committee

Diocese of Fort Worth

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.
