Diocese Moves Forward “Making Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age”
225th Convention Reflects on Positives; Considers Anglican Affiliation with ACNA
The 225th Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina, hosted by the Church of the Cross in Bluffton, SC, March 11-12, 2016 highlighted progress the Diocese made in recent years toward “Making Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age,” the vision cast by Bishop Mark Lawrence in 2009 during the first Convention after his election.
“I thought the convention was fantastic,” said the Rev. Shay Gaillard, Rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Charleston. “We had such a sense of unity and excitement. Bishop Lawrence’s address really helped us see what we have accomplished and the things going on in the parishes were an incredible encouragement.”
Over 400 clergy, lay delegates and guests from 53 churches, representing 23,000 members across the southern and coastal part of the state came together for the Bluffton event.

Eleven Nations Under One Roof; Fellows Release Statement Covenanting to Transform Society
The most controversial thing about the inauguration of an “Aspen Institute” type gathering of Anglican leaders in Charleston was the cold. Many of the 14 participants came from countries close to the Equator, and despite space heaters, a roaring fireplace, and a heated building they huddled in loaned parkas and woolen sweaters as if they were at the North Pole.

The Fire, Lord, Not the Junk Heap; An Ash Wednesday Reflection from Bishop Mark Lawrence
Let’s take pardon first.
“Two men” said Jesus “went up to the Temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.” So begins a parable appointed to be read in the daily office for Ash Wednesday—Luke 18:9-14. At first blush it seems quite simple. Most of us have heard it before; but if you read it again and again with the purpose of explaining it to others you may find, as I often have, it is a most disconcerting parable. This is not two men just happening to drop by the synagogue or church around the same time to pray about a problem in their lives. This is going up to the Temple for the evening sacrifice—the place of atonement.
