Christ Church Plano, Bishop Stanton come to separation agreement.
Most of you know by now that Christ Church Plano and the Bishop of Dallas have come to an agreement that allows the parish to formally leave the Episcopal Church. Christ Church will pay the diocese $1.2 million, so their freedom isn’t coming cheap.
But this is example of a bishop and parish working things out like adults, something that can't be taken for granted nowadays. Kudos to both parties.
Titusonenine has a couple entries on this, but they are having such server issues today I can’t access them now, I think because of an episcopal election in South Carolina. But Stand Firm has an entry here. And here’s the Dallas News’s artcle.
By the way, guess where I’ll be tomorrow morning at 9:15am?
