ECUSA - Some
ongoing thoughts about ECUSA, the Diocese of Maryland, St. Timothy's
Church, my former parish, and my faith.
I have left the Episcopal Church and my former
parish, St. Timothy's, Catonsville, Maryland. I believe my former
parish has gone into the Episcopal Babylonian captivity and is
trying to live in a bubble of denial. As we have seen over the last
few years, bubbles, whether financial or otherwise created, pop. May
God have mercy on them when it does. I, however, have been called
out of Babylon.
