from Ekklesia Daily News:
"The world the prophet promised, one of peace and justice,'still feels a long way off,' the presiding bishop told the Midnight Mass congregation at St. George’s Cathedral ..."
All the orthodox Episocopalians who were compelled to leave TEC under Schori's reign must feel the same way.
But if PB Schori can't establish peace in her own denomination, then she's the wrong cleric to preach about peace to anyone else.

The article rightly has "prince of peace" instead of "Prince of Peace" because Jeffers-Schori's description of the Messianic peace is so far removed from the Bible's version of "the peace of
God that surpassses all understanding" that she reveals she does not know the Bible's Messiah or his mission. Her theological depth is as deep as a frozen puddle in the back yard -- than the ocean she once studied. She might well qualify as the worst Christian leader of the 21st century -- both theologically and administratively. The only thing she is good at is driving believers away to take their money and property. There she excels.

Not a member among you.
It's much easier to sit back and complain rather than do anything to help your own community, assuming any of you have one.
God will let Satan have some time off as you folks are doing a 'hell' of a job for him.
