Lord have mercy! I know an excellent celibate Orthodox priest who would make a wonderful bishop for the DoS, which is his diocese.

In Christ,

I was so confused by the thread title! I imagined something like:

C:\DOS\FIND "EPISCOPAL"


Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

ROFL  At least the thread hasn't been moved from the prayer forum to technical help!

and, of course: Lord, have mercy!

My first thought was "What would the Department of State want with Episcopals??"

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
