Small worship groups form in wake of storm

Mar 2, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Post and Courier

One clear evening in mid-January, a group of Edisto Island Episcopalians gathered at the home of Gretchen Smith. They filled the living room. They spilled into the adjacent kitchen and front hallway.

They talked about outreach and volunteerism. They discussed options for securing a long-term worship space. They updated one another on the status of donated items ...

I can see you're now feeding you own ego.
Nope. Learned long ago that MY EGO can not be satisfied and so I don't feed it. To be of service to mankind is the only job God gives us. Why do you insult me for doing God's work? Are you jealous? Are you too stingy to give your last two coins? LOVE GOD and LOVE MANKIND! You really do have trouble understanding those TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS!

But you don't work after 5 and I asked you to help serve the HOMELESS dinner. That is at 6 p.m.
What better way to serve your fellow man that to help feed a homeless man, woman or child.
The UNITED WAY has absolutely nothing to do with St. John's Cathedral nor Sulzbacher.
According to the Center's website, "... the Center was founded by three different but equally important groups-the City of Jacksonville, a group of area philanthropists and businessmen and the United Way of Northeast Florida."

No one insults you for doing God's work - but for bragging about it and exalting yourself over others. Just do it.

Thank you Sel!

While some see your work as a negative (idiots) I thank you for the challenge and inspiration.

I've found a homeless shelter outside Tel Aviv and will be going their tomorrow. to serve.

Thank you for reminding me to feed the poor, wherever I am...

We took our name and our inspiration from a man who exhibited extraordinary civic leadership and concern for the homeless. I.M. Sulzbacher combined a successful business career with selfless dedication to our community. He took the lead in raising money and set the high standards for the center that now bears his name. And although he passed away in 2001, his spirit of giving and his dedication to the homeless lives on at the Sulzbacher Center.

If you really were an Episcopalian then you would know that I.M. Sulzbacher was a long time member of the St. John's Cathedral....but you really are not who you say you are. You are just another internet troll. It is so easy to call you out and to PROVE these things. It says that it was FOUNDED by 3 entities. It does not say that today...but then again, does it matter? NO. Your tax dollars give money to all kinds of places.

By the way, BOYCOTTING is UNCHRISTIAN!

I guess that they will be pissed off at me again because TONIGHT we are spending the night at the church and chaperoneing for Family Promise. It allows homeless families to stay together while looking for a permanent solution to finding work and housing. The families do get split up at a shelter. This way, they can stay together....and tomorrow is Bible Study....

I love staring the DEVIL straight in the eye. I am doing God's work and I know it! To expect an easy road to that would be folly.

You are so dense. 1. I WAS an Episcopalian. I am no longer an Episcopalian. 2. I have never been in St. John's Cathedral. 3. I don't "boycott" the Center. I simply choose other outlets for service.
So what exactly have I said that I am that you have proven I am not?

Can you read? It is not the work but rather the "brag" is a definite negative.

If you were EVER an Episcopalian say within the last 20 years in Jacksonville, then you would have known the history of Sulzbacher Center.

BOYCOTTING the killing of innocent un-born children is the most CHRISTIAN thing to do.
If you pretend to take care of the homeless and turn around and advocate for the killing of millions of innocent un-born children
well..........that would make you UNCHRISTIAN!
Do you honestly believe Jesus would be in your corner on this killing babies.
Your place is indeed being made for you as we speak.
Calling posters trolls simply because they dis agree isn't CHRISTIAN either porky.

This is what it says:
Originally the Center was founded by three different but equally important groups-the City of Jacksonville, a group of area philanthropists and businessmen and the United Way of Northeast Florida.

I knew that you would not show up....but as a Christian, it is ONLY my duty to ask.

As a CHRISTIAN it is only your your duty to tell the truth!

It is funny that YOU get to decide that I am NOT a Christian but if I question something that is COMMON knowledge in the local Jacksonville area...then where's the rub Joe? IF, he was an Episcopalian in Jacksonville, Florida, then he would have known that I.M.Sulzbacher is a former member of the Cathedral and STARTED SULZBACHER CENTER! GOD REST HIS SOUL.

I am really sick of your straw man arguments. You need to go to debate school or something...at least look up FALLACIES and see the error of your pitifully constructed arguments.

I don't judge where people are after death, it's not my call, it's not even Jesus' call, but only the Father.

Don't you read your book that you think is alive?

Didn't you go visit Msgr. Wallin often?

LOL......
