He first visits the Episcopal Church, the former mainstay of the mainline denominations that has declined significantly in recent years.

It is Bishop John Howard's worst nightmare come true. The Rev. Jim McCaslin, rector of All Souls in Jacksonville, told VirtueOnline that the bishop has said he is convinced that this is one of the strongest -- potentially THE strongest -- dioceses in our church and in our communion. "The impression that he would create is that the 'Florida Six' are simply a small dissident minority in an otherwise healthy and unified diocese," Fr. McCaslin said.

The Katrina hurricane that struck New Orleans and three Gulf states has taken a heavy toll not only on the people of the area, but on the psyche of a nation.
