A Word of Hope for Episcopalians

Following the Northern Plains Anglican's lead, I think this is very wise and timely remark from the comments section of The Deacon's Slant regarding the present situation of The Episcopal Church:

I do think TEC is still a church - just one in very bad shape - much like the Church before Francis or Dominic - intellicutaly lazy, adicted to secular power and taking its queues from the secular world. But it seems that everytime the Church gets into this position, God raises up a prophet (such as Francis - who was a Deacon by the way) to call the Church back into relationship with her Lord.

That is part of what I am trying to do in my little neck of the woods - be that prophet that calls the Church back to her Covenant.
