Ephesians 4:15-16 (ESV)
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
Our Father in heaven,
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from You, the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. There is so much property at stake in the appeal by TEC and its local agents against the Diocese of South Carolina.
O Father of lights, please protect the diocese from confusion, harassment, and division in this time of trial. May the communicants of the Diocese of South Carolina behold Your glory. Take their human frailties of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical fatigue and build them up by Your love that they may be transformed into the image of Christ.
James 1:17, 2 Corinthians 3:18
