January 13 2004 By virtueonline DR. FOLEY WRITES TO HIS PARISH

I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer serve the Lord as an Episcopal priest. It boils down to integrity, that I cannot knowingly violate my conscience. I cannot accept or abide by this new teaching of unChristian morality. In the words of Bishop Alexander, I can no longer embrace the “common life of the Episcopal Church.” So I must resign. My last day will be February 1 with the Annual Meeting of the Church.

January 13 2004 By virtueonline Report on Plano East - Day One

Did Bishop Lee ever dream that Bishop Duncan would lead a Eucharist of nearly 3,000 Episcopalians?

Tonight was the kickoff for the follow-up conference to the historic gathering of Episcopalians in Texas last October 7-10. Called "Plano" since that was the original site for the conference until the numbers grew too large (around 2,500 people as I recall) and had to be moved to Dallas.

But I got up. And out into the dark I went. What I found when I got to Plano East were now 3,000 Episcopalians - all fired up for Jesus.

January 10 2004 By virtueonline WESTERN NEW YORK: "You Have Your Opinion, You Will Not Change Mine"

Over and over Parishioners stood in the sanctuary to give their own personal faith statements and their opinions of their Bishop's decision at General Convention. Some mentioned that the many letters sent before General Convention appealing to the Bishop to carefully consider his vote had gone unanswered. The bishops reply was that he was too busy to answer these letters.

January 06 2004 By virtueonline Layman writes Bishop Lee Regarding His Recent Actions

Much has happened in the life of the church since I shook
your hand at Olivet Episcopal Church's 150-year anniversary earlier in
2003. As part of our family's ministry to historic re-enactors (see
www.historicfaith.net ), Rev. Harper
had asked us to help with preparations and we were there in 1850
