To all my fellow White Southerners


To all my fellow white Southerners who have mixed feelings about the battle flag and the “national flag” of the defeated and non existent nation of the Confederacy. My ancestors on both sides fought in the Confederate Army and in fact two of my paternal ancestors including a great grandfather and his brother, both of …

BE VIGILANT


I have always suspected that the demon of racism had tried to appear as an “angel of light” but recent and continuing events have proven to me that this evil has not only tried but is still trying to do exactly that. This servant of the Darkness along with his kith and kin of exclusion …

Yesterday as I stood with the person I love more than anyone and or any thing in this life, John, and next to a fellow clergyman that I respect very much and who has treated me always with respect, recognition ,and kindness, Fr Norris of St Mary’s Episcopal, where I celebrated my first Mass following …

Death in Charleston


Once again gun america has struck and the innocent have fallen.

AUTHENTIC CHRISTIANITY


I read a very interesting article by an Episcopalian on the upcoming General Convention of his church to be held in Utah.
