You can read it without my editorial comments here. South Dakota plans to elect a new Bishop in 2009.
Last night, I posted the statement with a bunch of my own comments interspersed. You know what? Some of it was good analysis and fair questioning, but much was sarcasm. God doesn't need my sarcasm to run His church. The fact is that the Diocese has issued a theological ("knowledge of God") statement that does not once mention or point to Jesus Christ. Yes, they are wrong, but my sarcasm does not improve things a bit and only adds to the devil's work.
Lord Jesus Christ, I pray for a true, loving, healing and healthy Anglican witness to the Dakotas. In whatever you are doing, may you be glorified and people brought to new life in you. Forgive me for letting my harsh words distract from your glory and your work. Pray the Father to pour out the Spirit on all who are languishing under theological confusion or error. I ask this in your Name. Amen.
