South Carolina Ox is Goring, Little Lambs are dying.
Over on Treading Grain one strand of the Diocese of South Carolina is making its views known. The Rev. Steven Wood says this, "It’s time for the Diocese of South Carolina to join the new North American Province: Anglican Communion North America. Anything short will mark a complete failure of leadership."
How wonderful this must be for Bishop Lawrence, who is confronted by the choice to either go with ACNA or be a complete failure. But then maybe he wants to go there.
Steve Woods... who is he and why must we care? Well, it doesn't matter. What matters is if Bishop Lawrence and or the Standing Committee or Diocesan Leadership listen to him. The Bishop and Standing Committee recently had a long meeting resulting in some sort of position paper or plan or something that would be presented to the clergy soon. But meanwhile, Fr. Wood has issued the challenge. "Time to go."
Any sense as to what is happening?
