The Gospel reading for the Daily Office today and convinced me of how wrong the conservatives who desire to leave the Episcopal Church are.
They find themselves in the sad role of the pharisees asking why Jesus would fellowship with sinners, which means they are on the wrong side of the Gospel.
While I firmly believe they are wrong in categorizing me, among many others as sinners, nevertheless once they do, they need to respond as Jesus would. Rather they take up the role of pharisee without even seeming to be aware of it.
They certainly need our prayers.
