Rt Rev Mark Lawrence and the Standing Committee of the Diocese of South Carolina have made known their intention to appeal to the US Supreme Court. They have lost all but 9 churches after the SC Supreme Court ruling and their appeal that Justice Hearn was biased has been rejected.
I think it’s time for South Carolina to let go of this court case. Buildings are not necessary for the proclamation of the gospel and the $ amount being spent on this case is not worth it. The churches in Virginia lost their properties and they have rebuilt, redefined and revisioned themselves.
It is time the Diocese of South Carolina embraces this and walks away. God’s faithfulness will not change whether one keeps their building or not and the Episcopal Church will have to give an account to God for their actions and use of resources….as will the Diocese of South Carolina.
Trust in God.
