Thank you Tony for sharing your faith with all of us!
My previous post- Tony Snow's got it - FAITH!
"For a lot of us as kids, having faith is like sitting on Santa's lap; you pray because you want things and you want outcomes. But instead when you're faced with death, you don't really die, you get to go to a cooler place with maybe a sterner teacher. It's not that big a leap and you're going to see a lot of friends there."
Our prayers continue for you Tony...but we ask your intercession now.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.

Inflame us with an ardent zeal to repair all these insults to which,in Thine infinite mercy, Thou hast preferred to expose Thyself rather than deprive us of Thy Presence on our altars, Who with Godthe Father and the Holy Spirit livest and reignest one God,world without end. R. Amen.

Anglican Church may create 'super bishops' to avoid splitting
Archbishop hits back at the evangelical rebels
'Super bishops' plan to stop schism
Church schism widens over women bishops
Rowan Williams stands tall
And it 'all' comes down to the proverbial question....
In a sermon charged with emotion and feeling, but delivered with poise and unflinching stoicism, he set out his inclusive, all embracing vision for the Church.
"What would Jesus do is a good question to ask," he said. "Where would Jesus be is just as good.
Jesus 'would feel Anglican pain'
Gay Episcopal bishop sees hope for progress
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
