Okay,yes, that’s my title not the SacBee’s
A world contained in grains of sand
The sights and sounds within Trinity Episcopal Cathedral on Thursday morning were anything but typical.
While evergreen wreaths adorned the pulpit and garlands decorated pillars, it wasn’t the sound of hymns or Christmas carols that filled the Episcopal church.
Instead, the melodic voices of two Tibetan monks chanting and praying rang through the cathedral. The smell of sweet incense filled the air.
We pride ourselves on having some of the most open, honest debate anywhere about the crisis in our church. However, we do have a few rules that we enforce strictly. They are: No over-the-top profanity, no racial or ethnic slurs, and no threats real or implied of physical violence. Please see this post

Since we try to err on the side of open debate, you may sometimes see comments that you believe strain the boundaries of our rules.
