This coming Saturday our diocese will gather to re-elect The Rev. Mark J. Lawrence to be the Fourteenth Bishop of South Carolina. Pray that the consents will come in quickly and that the consecration will be able to go forward as soon as possible. Here is a picture of Mark and his wonderful wife, Allison, from last year.
