How in the world did the "charismatic" stream of tradition get rung in as authentic to this diocese? The Episcopal Church never had Holy Rollers until the 1960s - and that's not a tradition you want to encourage.

And one of the candidates says he practices glossolalia in private!

The charismatic stream began with St. Peter at Pentecost. It has been practiced and encouraged by Bishop Schofield for more than twenty years, along with numbers of lay people and clergy. It is not new to this diocese.
