  1. I used to attend St. Timothy in Goose Creek, SC, many years ago, but left after they allowed a bitterly partisan presentation against President Reagan following a service. Hopefully in the years since then, the congregation has realized the error of allowing that sort of activity within the sanctuary.

    A vote to stand for the Inerrancy of Holy Scripture would be a great positive step.
