    Two Lesbian Episcopal Clergy Marry

    in Religion

    Same-sex marriage is a phrase that conjures quite a bit of contention.  The contentions are subject to arise in any organization whether it is a family, workplace, the military or church.  The Episcopal Church it seems has just sided with same-sex marriage by allowing the marriage of two of their lesbian clergy members.  Of course, this marriage has brought on contention.  But why does the contention occur?  Is there really something wrong with same-sex marriage?  If there were something wrong with same-sex marriage don’t you think members of the clergy would know that?

    Paige McKay Kubik- The Executive Director of Frazer Center

    in Women

    The Frazer Center is an inclusive community where people at all levels of ability and disability gather, learn and flourish together. 


    This is the backstory of The Frazer Center- The life of a young couple is often the stuff of dreams: the places they may live, the journeys they may take, the children they may have. In 1948, this was the story for one of our founding families, the Lanes.


    Their lives took an unexpected turn, however, when their daughter was born with cerebral palsy. Together with their dear friends the Frazers, the Lanes searched for a program for their daughter. Feeling frustrated and saddened by what they saw, they created the Cerebral Palsy School for six children at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in 1949. Two years later, the Frazers and Lanes were able to acquire the former estate of Cator Woolford (founder of the Retail Credit Company, now Equifax), thirty-nine acres located in the heart of Druid Hills. Renamed REACH in 1989 and The Frazer Center in 1999, our historic mission to offer research-based education, vocational support, and therapeutic intervention to children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families is still the heart of our work today.

    St. Bertulf of Bobbio

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Saint Bertulf (died 640) was a German who converted to Christianity. He was the son of a pagan nobleman and was a near relative of Arnulf of Metz, whose example had such an influence on Bertulf that he became a Christian and in 620 entered the monastery of Luxeuil.


    A few years later he became acquainted with Abbot Attala, who had come to Luxeuil on a visit, and, with permission of Abbot Eustace of Luxeuil, joined Attala's community at Bobbio in Italy. Upon the death of Attala in 627, Bertulf was elected by the monks of Bobbio as their abbot. Like his predecessor, he insisted on the observance of the austere rule introduced by St. Columban, the founder of Bobbio Abbey, and preached fearlessly against Arianism, which had gained a firm foothold in Italy under the Lombard kings.


    When the Bishop of Tortona endeavoured to bring Bobbio under his own jurisdiction, Bertulf hastened to Rome, where Pope Honorius I received him kindly and granted the monastery entire exemption from episcopal jurisdiction. Jonas, a monk of Bobbio, who accompanied Bertulf on his journey to Rome, relates that, while returning to his monastery, Bertulf was attacked by a deadly fever, and cured miraculously by St. Peter. The same author ascribes a few other miracles to the prayers of St. Bertulf. Most martyrologies give him the title of saint. His feast is celebrated on August 19.

    Illegitimate Bishops Part 2

    in Religion

    For 40 years Apostolic Succession and Legitimacy have become the buzzwords among us today.  Yet most have no real idea of what real apostolic succession  and legitimacy is.


    The cost monthly for being a bishop is different from being an overseer.  Is being bishop about making money because if it is that is simony and that invalidates your ordination


    Bishopric has never been attached to success ministry.


    The Bishopric was never historically attached to having a Doctor of Ministry which in Europe is an honorary degree and not a Sacred degree (Sacred Theology or Canon Law).


    The Work does not come before the Office... That is not historically right or biblically correct.


    Power of Ordination in your right hand? or both hands?


    Scripturally what makes one legitimate


    Does succession makes one legitimate


    Have we thrown 1 Timothy 3 out the door?


    How many ordinations is too many?


    Who can ordained who?
