schism in the blood
The overwhelming vote by two of Northern Virginia's largest Episcopalian congregations to leave the Episcopal Church in favor of joining an Anglican convocation led by a Nigerian bishop is sad, and will lead to lots of fighting over property, history, and theology. The theology fight has been going on for a long time; I'm sorry that the churches felt they couldn't resolve the issue without leaving. That said, a friend is on staff at the Falls Church and I know he doesn't take decisions like this lightly. It's all just really sad.
