Bishop John Howe's Latest Diary Entry

The Bishop of Central Florida has been posting his experience via his diocesan web site. Here's the latest from a conservative Bishop who doesn't want to realign. -

"I am reminded what theologian Martin Marty said to us when the Episcopal Bishops met with our Lutheran counterparts in the early 1990s. He commented that there have only been two issues that have so divided Christians in the history of the Church as have the issues of homosexuality: Christology, during the early centuries, and Justification at the time of the Reformation. "And," he said, "in both cases it took about 300 years to sort the matter out. So, don't expect any early or easy resolution.""
