Presiding Bishop’s Pastoral Letter to the Diocese of South Carolina

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has written a pastoral letter to the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina:

“Your presence adds to the ability of this community to discern the will of God, even if you disagree vehemently with one or another resolution passed by a particular General Convention. There will be another General Convention in less than three years, and another after that. Never in the history of Christianity have all the faithful agreed about everything, and I doubt very much that we will come to full agreement about everything before we join the saints in light at Jesus’ Second Coming!”
