7WD responds to departure of three dioceses

It’s been a busy week in the parish I serve, so I had little time for blogging. Since I’ve last commented on such matters, the dioceses of Pittsburgh, Quincy, and Fort Worth have announced their desire to leave the Episcopal Church and to affiliate with the Province of the Southern Cone. You can find serious commentary on other blogs.

This is my less than serious response:

I guess my answer doesn’t quite fit the question, but I felt that I should say something about these folks leaving. Since I lacked motivation to comment, I’d been quiet until now. Then this video came across my blogospheric radar today. Oh, and people were starting to get cranky for their 7WD fix. So, here it is.

    At Japanese fruit prices, that ocarina must have cost this guy a fortune!

  2. Are you suggesting this is somehow all about fruit, then?

    Okay! Tell me we get to refer to them as Coneheads!

    Bishop Alan,

    Well, perhaps. I’m saying that bloggers blowing smoke about all this makes about as much sense as playing “London Bridge is falling down” on a piece of fruit. I’m saying maybe we take all this too seriously at times. I’m saying that at least in my little corner of the world, God’s work will go on with or without Jack Iker and his posse. In the parish I serve, no one particularly cares about the Diocese of Fort Worth or Pittsburgh or Quincy.

    To everything there is a season. At some point, I’ll reflect on how I also grieve another schism in Christ’s Church. But for today, I trust that others have done that, so I’ll enjoy another fruit tune.
