A Really Sad Local Story

Posted by Kendall Harmon

[George] Weld was rector of Saint Johns Episcopal Church from 1987 to 1995. That ended after church members complained about him violating guidelines for touching and supervision, Bishop Edward L. Salmon Jr. said. There was no evidence he had done anything illegal. "Over-familiarity is one way to describe it," Salmon said. "I had no accusations of impropriety, absolutely none."

The bishop allowed Weld to serve in a limited capacity after he left Saint Johns but eventually suspended him.

Read it all. Of course there are some stories like this I would rather not post but this is a news oriented site. George has not been with the diocese since the mid 1990's. I ask your prayers for all involved, especially the whole Weld family--KSH.
