Coffee and Conversation with Presiding Bishop Tito Zavala, May 20
The Most Rev. Hector “Tito” Zavala, Bishop of Chile and Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Province of South America, comprising the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay, who serves as the Diocese of South Carolina’s liaison to the Global South Primates Steering Committee, will be holding two meetings with the Bishop, clergy and parishioners in the Diocese of South Carolina May 20, 2015. One will be held at St. Matthias in Summerton from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and the other will be at the Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul, Charleston from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
As one of 40 primates of the 80 million member worldwide Anglican Communion, Bishop Zavala will be in South Carolina specifically to encourage and support fellow Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Mark J. Lawrence, and the clergy and lay people of the Diocese of South Carolina.
“We’re grateful for the strong support we’ve received from Anglicans around the world and are especially thankful for this time we’ll have with Bishop Zavala,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark J. Lawrence, XIV Bishop of South Carolina. “The Global South Primates have assured us of their prayers and their stand with us.”

The Rev. Dr. Dallas Wilson Receives National FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award
The Bureau has been presenting its Director’s Community Leadership Awards (DCLA) for more than two decades to ordinary citizens and organizations striving to build stronger, safer, and more cohesive communities
Brother Dallas was one of 57 national recipients recognized by Director James Comey in the ceremony at FBI Headquarters in Washington DC.
A statement released by the FBI said in part, “This year’s honorees have distinguished themselves in remarkable ways through their hard work, their leadership, and their strength of character. They are ordinary citizens, but what they have accomplished is nothing short of extraordinary. Time and again today’s award recipients have put others before themselves as they strive to protect the innocent and rescue the vulnerable. Today we not only recognize your achievements, but we also offer our sincerest gratitude for dedicating yourselves to your fellow citizens and to the principles of fairness, justice and equality. Public service is about what we can do to help one another. And we all know, we are at our best when we work together. We at the FBI are proud to partner with you.”
Leaders from the Diocese of South Carolina and Anglican Church in North America Meet at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center
Leaders from the Diocese of South Carolina and the Anglican Church in North America, led by Bishop Mark Lawrence and Archbishop Foley Beach, came together at St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center, South Carolina on April 28-29, 2015 for prayer, fellowship, and conversation.
The Diocese of South Carolina was represented by Bishop Mark Lawrence, Mr. Wade Logan, Mr. Alan Runyan, The Rev. Craige Borrett, The Rev. Kendall Harmon, The Rev. Jeffrey Miller, Mrs. Boo Pennewill, and The Rev. Jim Lewis.
The Anglican Church in North America was represented by Archbishop Foley Beach, Bishop Ray Sutton, Bishop John Guernsey, Bishop Bill Atwood, Bishop Terrell Glenn, The Rev. Phil Ashey, The Rev. Jack Lumanog, Mr. Scott Ward, and Mr. Tad Brenner.
Our conversations reflected the mutual respect and sincere affection that we share as fellow Anglicans, and we appreciated the opportunity to speak candidly together about topics that affect our common life.
We had frank exchanges that examined the possible compatibility of the ecclesiologies of the Anglican Church in North America and the Diocese of South Carolina.
There is a wide spectrum of polities in the provinces of the Anglican Communion and these differences affect the ways in which dioceses relate to their respective provinces. Provinces such as Nigeria are more hierarchical, while provinces such as South America are more conciliar. Our conversations began exploring the practical dimensions of how a diocese and province relate in the structure of the Anglican Church in North America.
