Speaking about our connection, I see us as more unconnected these days than ever with the exception of three areas. We are connected through apportionments, iteneracy and how we are seen in negative lights by the the public.

This is one of the things that gets people's attentions. And it's just another way of seeing our Denomination as bad. This is because when people read about this incident, many will automatically get a bad taste for us Methodists. I mean, ain't all Episcopalians liberal and believe in homosexuality? NO. But I wonder how many people believe this?

As for the allegations, I was told in a meeting that we had to have on ethics because of the rampant run of unethical behavior a couple years back that about half of the accusations against clergy are true.

Of course that means that half are not, which means that half of these pastor's ministry's have been altered for no reason at all. For as long as a pastor has been accused, there will always be doubt about him/her...even when they are supposedly proved innocent.

It scares me to death what one mad and unbalanced person can do to my ministry.

I think I've gone on long enough. I'll shut up now. Thanks for the post.

In the love of Christ,
