(Christian Post) Episcopal Leader to Visit ‘Continuing Episcopalians’ in SC Diocese

Posted by Kendall Harmon

[The] Rev. Canon Jim Lewis, who is part of the diocesan leadership that decided to break away from TEC, told The Christian Post that he has little issue with the process that the Continuing Episcopalians are undertaking. "We have said consistently that The Episcopal Church (TEC) is free to set up a new Diocese here. She has every right to come and be a part of that process," said Lewis.

"What neither she nor TEC has a right to do is to claim to be us in that process. We remain the same legally incorporated entity that was established in 1785 (four years before TEC was founded). We have disassociated with TEC but we have not ceased to be The Diocese of South Carolina."

If the congregations that have withdrawn from the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina are indeed “The Episcopal Church in South Carolina” what does that make the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina?  Chopped liver?
