Remembering Courage

As a quick post in the midst of Epiphany West 2007, Florence Li Tim-Oi was remembered yesterday in Lesser Feasts and Fasts and at our Evening Prayer service at CDSP.

Mark Harris has posted, in his usually insightful style, a remembrance of this saint in our Anglican tradition, and how her Christ-like witness in the face of delay and isolation by the broader Communion speaks to our present conflict.

The icon of the Rev. Dr Florence Li Tim-Oi was written by the Rev. Dr. Ellen Francis Poisson, Order of St Helena, New York. It was dedicated at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London on 24 January 2004, the Diamond Jubilee of Florence Li Tim-Oi's priesting.
