Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.



the Rt. Rev. Rodney MichelThe Rt. Rev. Rodney Michel, (pictured at right) retired Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Long Island, who is assisting our own Bishop Louttit, will be at both worhsip services at King of Peace today. It reminded me to share a couple of quotes and a new story:
The happiest and most useful relationship for a Bishop or Priest is that of Friend to his people. It means trust—and service—and love. And beyond this there is nothing else.
—the Rt. Rev. Middleton S. Barnwell, fifth bishop of the Diocese of Georgia
It is high time the Episcopal Church rose from her dignified posture of waiting to be discovered...and went out into the byways and hedges seeking souls for whom her Lord died.
—the Rt. Rev. Albert Rhett Stuart, sixth Bishop of the Diocese of Georgia

In a story told to me yesterday, someone recounted being a single mom at Christ Episcopal Church, Valdosta and her daughter on seeing Henry Louttit, then priest now tenth Bishop of the Diocese of Georgia, said, "Look Mommy, it's Jesus Christ." Father Louttit replied, "I wish everyone could see Christ in other people the way she does."


The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
