St. David’s, an Episcopal church in Bean Blossom, Indiana, was vandalized late Saturday night, greeting parishioners with this on Sunday morning. At the same time in Silver Spring, Maryland, the Church of Our Saviour suffered a similar attack, with “White People Only” spray-painted on a church sign welcoming Latinos, and on the outside wall by the columbarium, which must feel to parishioners like desecrating their elders’ graves. Our congregation has close ties with the church in Indiana; we worshiped there during our retreat last year, and the priest-in-charge has attended many of our webcasts. We grieve and we are angry, but to a Christian, persecution is a badge of honor. (parish photos on Facebook)
