I remember this story from several years ago.
There was a man who lived alone on a mountain. Outside his cabin, there was a very large and heavy rock.
God spoke to the man and said: "Every morning, for 1 hour each day, I want you to push with all your strength against this rock.
The man, being faithful, agreed and for several weeks, he strained at pushing the rock, but the rock would not move.
One day, Satan spied the man pushing the rock and came to him while pushing and said:
"Why do you push against the rock?"
"Because God told me to" the man said.
"Why?" Satan asked. "You will never move it. You can't possibly succeed. All you are doing is waisting your time pushing against something that you can never move. You could even hurt yourself if you push too hard."
The man thought for a bit and said: "You know? You're right." He continued to push each day, but pushed with less force than before. One day, he stopped pushing.
God came to the man and asked why he stopped pushing. "Because I'll never move the rock. I might even hurt myself if I continue to push with all my strength.
God said to the man: "I never asked you to move the rock. I asked you to push against it. Now your arms and legs are stronger than ever before. Your back is fit for the work I prepared for you. You have made yourself less useful because you didn't push against the rock. Push hard for a little longer and you will be ready for the work I am to give you."
I hope you see the parallel between this story and the present situation in the ECUSA. Those of us on the "conservative" or reasserter or traditionalist side of the issue are getting tired of pushing against the rock that is the wayward ECUSA. We fear that we will never be successful. That is not our call. We are called to be faithful and to continue to witness to the Truth concerning Biblical Authority and the traditional expression of Anglicanism.
