'I pray that one day the Episcopal Church will come to a different understanding of the Gospel --a more traditional understanding,' Foster said.'And I pray the lawsuits (over property) will end.'

'Duncan said we're not 'againners'-- that is, against the Episcopal Church. Instead, we are to keep the main thing the main thing, of proclaiming the Gospel of Christ. We're invited to feed the hungry, care for the sick. We're invited to touch the lepers and care for AIDS patients ...'"
