A Time of Consecration in the TEC Diocese of South Carolina, U.S.A.

I thank God that, in many places of our world-wide Anglican Communion, the charisms of Ordination and Consecration of faithful people into the role of clergy and bishops – despite the restrictions of the Covid Epidemic – are still being carried out in the physical presence of some, and in the virtual presence of others, online.

This is a sign of the constant work of the Holy Spirit to initiate, foster and inform the ongoing ministry of oversight in the Anglican Episcopal Churches around the world in a time of shared tension and concern for the well-being of all humanity in a time of shared crisis and vulnerability.

I especially commend the insight shown by the preacher in this service, which demonstrated the level of care with which this new Bishop of The Church has been chosen – for her spirituality and warmth of love for people, and her dedication to the service of ALL in her new ministry of oversight in her diocese.

May God richly bless the Church and people of South Carolina, as they assist their new leader in the proclamation of the Good New of the Love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Father Ron Smith, Christchurch, New Zealand
