A parish just around the corner

An Anglican parish just around the corner from me was recently seriously divided by current affairs. The dissenting folks left the parish. (These were the ones who didn't believe in Psalm singing.) This is always emotionally painful and financially difficult.

Well, it turns out that this little parish owned 2 chairs valued in the '90s at about $2000. It was discovered that they were 17th century genuine Ming dynasty chairs. I see in our Diocesan Post that the parish has netted $615,000 for them. The amount paid was in excess of 750,000.

Blessings to the parish that accepts all in the name of Christ.

For one reason or another I don't worship there. My parish is actually closer. (And higher.) Story here.
