Mike Clarkson, the Rector of our Saviour, John’s Island, S.C.—Where I Stand on the Diocese of S.C.

Posted by Kendall Harmon

I have been asked by our Vestry and a number of our members to publically state my position on recent events between the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina and the national Episcopal Church. For the past four years I have attempted to teach and clarify issues as objectively as I could as they arose between the Worldwide Anglican Communion, The Episcopal Church and our Diocese. I will continue to do that in the two upcoming congregational meetings. So there will be no confusion however I will now make a summary of my own thoughts clear.

Read it all (page 6 of pdf).

“I have been a part of the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church for all of my life and my family for at least twenty generations that we can trace. ... Over twenty years ago I took oaths before God to support the Doctrine, Discipline and Worship of the Anglican Church in all things lawful and Scriptural. I now believe that to continue to follow the dictates of the national church will either force me to violate these oaths or to resign.”

Very sad that it should come to this, when Rev Clarkson has such a long and rich heritage in the Anglican church. 

But all praise to the Lord that he has chosen to be faithful to what is true and good.
