Wayne Smith's occasional blog of pilgrimages and journeys

Wednesday, July 23. Early.

Those of you who have been following the news coming from the Episcopal Church of the Sudan will know that my life has suddenly become very busy. Blogging will be at a minimum for a day or two. I plead with you for your prayers.

I can only imagine that you, too, feel sad and perhaps, blindsided.
So sad. Yet, we who are many share one cup, one body; and that remains the goal of who we are. I found value in Dr. McLaren's words as well and I know that we are given all parts of the body for the building up of the whole church; a lot of prayer and listening~ a lot of humility. Painful indeed. You are continually in my prayers, yet "likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words." [Romans 8:26] Shalom, Kathi

Dear Bishop Smith, you know that I know all too well what it is like to be "wounded in the house of a friend." I am praying for you and all my sisters and brothers here in Missouri especially at this time. Barbi
