Fighting for Irrelevance

During recent severe weather, the city of Aberdeen, SD suffered destructive floods.

There's been nothing from the Diocese of South Dakota about Aberdeen - nothing on the diocesan website, no emails or letters to parishes - nothing. And this is all the more shocking since there is an Episcopal parish in Aberdeen.

Now, in humility and honesty, we have to admit that this isn't a conservative vs. liberal, traditionalist vs. revisionist issue. Nobody of any Anglican stripe is saying anything about Aberdeen.

We are fighting about all kinds of stuff, so much so that we can't do Christian basics. "If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other." Galatians 5:15

Not only is there an Episcopal presence in Aberdeen, it is one of the more educated and more faithful to participate in the opportunities for growth that the diocese offers, with several from St. Mark's in attendance at all ministry weekends and Niobrara Summer Seminary sessions.
