[VirtueOnline] 2 Nov 2007--The Episcopal Church and its structures cannot be reformed without the direct intervention of the Holy Spirit in a revival type moment which no one can control, says a former Episcopal priest of the largest attended Episcopal parish in the U.S.
Speaking to a gathering of orthodox Episcopalians at a meeting of the SE Wisconsin Chapter of the AAC (SEWAAC) held at Nashotah House recently, the Rev. David Roseberry, 52, rector of Christ Church in Plano, Texas, said the Church has become so democratically wed to its structures that its policies really would have to be ignored if revival occurred. "They could never be changed. The way we do business, the way the Episcopal Church does business, in a democratically elected forum where everything goes up for vote to me turns the corner on whether the Episcopal Church can be reformed or not."
