Well doesn't she sound warm and understanding. Of course she told you that there was no dissention. Does she keep up with the news at all? She would not be accepted into the Church as a priest so I would say this is a pretty biased opinion based upon self-preservation.
Yes seems very warm and understanding. She's actually one of the people I'm giving some consideration to being a possible Christian spiritual advisor. And her small church, not wealthy at all it seems to me financially. They worship in their very modest parish hall. Provide an awesome outreach where the needy can come for food, meals, and clothing several days a wk at no charge. Not like a thrift store shop with a nominal fee. I absolutely love that. She told me she always keeps some donated clothing back in her office because the homeless know they can always come in anytime she is in her office. And I'm sorry I realize I wasn't clear. The priests I've corresponded with have assured me of no dissention in their diocese. She was actually baptized in the Catholic Church and reared in it in her early upbringing but decided to be confirmed Episcopalian at the time of age for Confirmation. Actually another of the Episcopal priests I've corresponded with was actually a Catholic priest in the Roman rite but left to become an Episcopal priest. He seems very warm too. Even though he knew my mother was not Episcopalian, when she was homebound in her later yrs, he offered to have Episcopal Communion brought to her. Though I did not take him up on the offer at the time, I've always and to this day thought that was extremely nice. I've also corresponded with a non Episcopalian but Protestant pastor who too was Catholic. Peace.
