I am not making this up for laughs. Really:
Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori invites a focus on the Millennium Development Goals for Lent 2012.
“I invite you to use the Millennium Development Goals as your focus for Lenten study and discipline and prayer and fasting this year,” Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori said. “The Millennium Development Goals are truly reflective of several of the Five Marks of Mission.”
I could make a snarky comment about The Episcopal Church becoming the religious arm of the UN (and of the Democrat Party for that matter). But you’ve got to hand it to TEC. They make satire really easy . . . or really hard depending how you look at it.
