"Wash.National Cathedral Had A Reading From the KORAN"
"The WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL'S installed its new
dean, one Samuel Lloyd, formerly of Trinity Church,
Copley Square, Boston. The first reading (this was not
billed as an ecumenical service) was
from the Holy Koran! Lord have mercy, Christ have
mercy, Lord have mercy." (The Washington National
Cathedral is Episcopalian.)
"The following day, Sunday April 24, The Rev. Lloyd
started his tenure as Dean of "America's Church" with
a bang. At Lloyd's invitation, the homily was given by
The Rev. Dr. George F. Regas, Rector Emeritus of All
Saints Church in Pasadena, California. The
service included readings from the Koran and Hebrew
scriptures, and open communion. You can read what
Regas had to say in his sermon.
Hint. He says that Jesus is not the only way of
salvation and he has some pluralistic ideas that will
fire you up for sure. You can read his thoughts in
"And to round things off at the Washington National
Cathedral, VirtueOnline has learned that the moderator
of America's official gay church - the Metropolitan
Community Church (MCC) will install
its new moderator at the Episcopal cathedral Oct.
29-30. The announcement was made by Troy D. Perry, the
present moderator of the MCC."
