Working on my sermon...feeling a bit like this:

Kraftwerk: Antenna (1976)

"I'm the antenna (i.e., preacher), catching vibration. You're (i.e., God) the transmitor, give innovation (please)."

Hi John. Meriwether here. I live in Charleston and can't believe you've been here the whole time. I just googled your name, thinking you were in New York, and found this. WEIRD!! I'm married and have an eight month old son. We're moving to Asheville in two weeks. Please email me when you can.
So good to see what you're up to! I knew it would be something spectacular!

Bishop of Nevada Katharine Jefferts Schori
And now, the Church has Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schori - the newly-installed, first female presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church USA who believes that Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) is NOT the only way to get to heaven, and that God makes some people "gay". In her first sermon after her election at the church's general convention in June 2006, Jefferts-Schori angered the church's conservative wing by referring to "Mother Jesus." (Miami Herald, Nov. 2, 2006) Although we discover in Colossians 2:9 that in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form; and in John 14:6 Yeshua said: "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me" - Jefferts-Schori says she doesn't consider Him to be the only way to God....Instead, she views salvation as the healing of all Creation through holy living. "I understand salvation as being about the healing of the whole creation. Your part and my part in that is about holy living," she offered. "As Christians we understand [salvation] as relationship with God in Jesus, but that does not mean that we're expected to judge other people's own commitments." (Agape Press, Nov.2, 2006) The Episcopal Church has been embroiled for years in a debate over the ordination of homosexual clergy and "blessing" ceremonies for same-sex couples. Where does Bishop-Schori stand on the issue of homosexuality? She supports both - and in fact, she voted in 2003 to confirm her denomination's first openly homosexual bishop, V. Gene Robinson. She told AP that she does not believe the Bible condemns "committed" homosexual relationships. God, she says, made some people "gay."...."Sexual orientation is pretty clearly defined at a very early age, before the age of reason. It's not a choice," she said...Scriptures in the Bible about homosexual acts being sinful, she says, are misunderstood. "They're not about what today we see as mature human beings entering into committed relationships with each other on a full and equal basis,".... (Agape Press, Nov. 2, 2006)
