    I have aleays believe the priniples of the 12 step program. And I also believe firmly regarding the good nuns who taught me. The one rule they didnt adhere to is not so much a rule, as Christs prinicple of life. Abortion is a choice,as is the choice to take a drink. The drink doesnt go against any principle. However arbortion which some of these nuns were advocating, does go against what many RRC's believe, the sanctity of life. And if Christ is LIFE,as I believe He is meant to be as a Christian. Than to advocate abortion, is against that principle. If I take a drink, I may only be hurting myself. If I am lucky, I will avoid harming another. However, the principle of life, when abortion is the choice, violates what is seen as the will of GOD. I do not enforce my beliefs on anyone. However, the nuns who taught me, would never believe they had a greater authority in GODS WILL, than God. Its the sanctity of life, that is the issue, not one of a womens rights.

    Stephanie I think the ELCA-ECUSA agreement to recognize each other's sacraments relates to disagreements over ordination that existed in during the dialog process. The ECUSA holds to apostolic succession and the ELCA doesn't (for us the Gospel validates itself not a bishop in the line of succession; and for the historically minded the apostolic succession is a fiction). So the ELCA recognizes Episcopal ordinations and the Episcopalians recognize Lutheran ordinations. There's probably more to the story but my field is biblical studies and not ecumenical relations.

    Stephanie, Thanks for your warm support regarding today's journal post on someone speading lies or discord in the body of Christ. On that site, posts can be reported be the users if they feel they are in violation of community guidelines. It's the same here. There is a group of Christians that I guess you could humorously call the Violation Police (They call them report monkeys on that site)that banded together to report violations en masse when someone either did violate the community guidelines or, sadly, as a form of censorship because they did not agree with what the person had to share. Pastor G and I were slandered by a guy claiming we are and were part of that group. Unfortunately, many bought into his lies and, as you say, placed a stumbling block between our being able to encourage them in any way because our credibility was shot in their eyes. So sad! Anyhoo, thanks for your love as always. Hugs, Pastor S
