Lawrence Preaches at Clergy Renewal of Vows Service
Bishop Mark Lawrence cautioned the clergy about “doing more for God while spending precious little time with God” in his sermon at the Clergy Renewal of Vows service held April 6 at the Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul, in Charleston. “We are doing more and enjoying it less,” he said. “Rare is the priest who doesn’t take it as a compliment when someone says, ‘You are the busiest person I know.‘”
Diocese of South Carolina Votes to Affiliate with the ACNA
“I cast my vote to affiliate with the ACNA with eager and expectant faith,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark J. Lawrence, the 14th Bishop of South Carolina in his address to the convention. “I believe God has called us to this and I believe we will find a deeper richness in our vocation; fuller fellowship in the Spirit; a more zealous thrust in mission. But most of all, I believe a door will be opened, the fresh winds of the Spirit will blow, and a caged eagle will soar.”
Affiliation with the ACNA brings the Diocese into full communion with an organization of 111,853 members in 966 churches and 32 dioceses spread across Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
