Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina

92nd Convention Eucharist and Bishop's Address

A high-quality video of the Eucharist and Bishop's Address to the 92nd Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina is now available on YouTube. Most of us are not aware of the companion relationship our diocese had with the Diocese of Taiwan in the late 60s and early 70s. Please watch and share as you like.

Bishop’s Address – 91st Convention of the EDUSC

(Matthew 28:18-20) Jesus came and said to the disciples, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Earlier this year, I noticed an app was available for the iPhone called simply “Dictionary.com.” Loving words as I do and seeing that the app had some depth to it, I downloaded it and have especially enjoyed its “Word of the Day” feature that pops up every day around noon. In the course of a week, I never fail to encounter words I’ve never seen or heard in my life, many with surprising and remarkably precise definitions.


90th Annual Convention - Bishop's Strategic Visioning Introduction

Presented by Bishop Waldo at the 90th Diocesan Convention
In my address at last year’s annual convention, I presented a vision for this diocese – a vision that all of us in this diocese be about the work of making, equipping and sending mature disciples of Jesus Christ into the world in witness to God’s love.  I believe this vision is a critical and life-giving response to a critical time in the life of the Church.  It is a vision that I believe can strengthen every congregation and energize the work of commissions and committees in this diocese.


90th Diocesan Convention Bishop's Address

20 OCTOBER 2012

(Luke 4:14-21) Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: 'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
