The Episcopal Church where no matter what year it is...it's always 1968. Let's see what Jesus has to say about this:
ESCANABA, Mich. (AP) -- The new bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Michigan is an ordained Zen Buddhist.
Northern Michigan's Episcopal congregations and delegates overwhelmingly elected the Rev. Kevin Thew Forrester at their convention on Saturday.
The diocesan Web site says Thew Forrester "has practiced Zen meditation for almost a decade," and the Buddhist community welcomed his commitment by granting him "lay ordination."The Web site says Northern Michigan's new bishop "resonates deeply" with "his own interfaith dialogue with Buddhism and meditative practice.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.Thank the Lord that we are free.
