Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

The Tip of the Iceberg

"One important way to think about what's happened recently in the Episcopal Church is the analogy of an iceberg. I think what's occurred is a trap for people in the sense that what gets noticed is the part above the water, which is sex. It gets all the headlines, it sells all the paper, and it's what people think the controversy is all about. But just as in an iceberg, when it's the little tip that you can see above the water, it's the part below the water that's attached to the tip that's the thing that actually sinks the ship. And this situation is exactly like that."
The Rev. Dr. Kendall S. Harmon
