June 17 2022 By dvirtue Episcopal Diocese of Chicago's Financial Woes and Loss of Parishioners Escalate

Shortly before his exit 18 months ago, thankfully departed Bp Jeffrey Lee announced the prospective sale of the building which had held his offices for his dismal 12-year reign. Adjacent to the Cathedral of St. James which had served as the bishop's seat since the 1930s (the original cathedral, Sts.

pour herself upon young and old,
male and female, gay and straight,
throw our borders into confusion
and give us a new language of love;
through Jesus Christ, the Image of God's Being."

June 08 2022 By dvirtue Canterbury rebuke to African Primates reveals theological difference and personal animosity

Archbishop Welby's letter mentions Lambeth I:10, and says it has not been rescinded. But the implication is that this resolution is of merely academic and historic interest, not morally binding in any way. This is why Provinces which have disregarded its teaching on sex and marriage still take part in the Anglican Communion as if nothing has happened.

Yes, common sense gun control regulations are necessary.

I see no need for civilians to be in possession of military-style assault rifle firearms such as the AK-47 or the AR-15, the Gatling gun or the machine gun. Those weapons are designed for warfare.
