"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Diocese of Michigan Publicity Campaign

Father WB at Whitehall calls our attention to the billboard at left, "My God is Mother: I'm an Episcopalian." If you go to the web site listed on the billboard, www.edomi.org, you will discover that such ads are part of a membership program sponsored by the ECUSA diocese of Michigan. It seems that for a little more than $5500 you not only may share the joy of telling the Great State of Michigan "what God is" in letters three feet high, but also will receive a host of other materials (but sadly the fee "does not give you the right to change the campaign in any way"). With a membership campaign of this quality, surely the sky's the limit for the diocese of Michigan!

I love the photo - especially the beam/mote or whatever it is that covers the person's face on the poster. And boy...the temptation to coin a quip on that basis....is overwhelming.....must resist the borg!

What a bunch of wackiness. I saw the video on the internet. Pretty sickening. I feel sorry for the orthodox in that diocese!
