Last week, the Episcopal Church moved closer to full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, taking steps toward recognizing same-sex marriage and gay bishops. However, some believe that this decision by the church is doing it more harm than good, as seen by the many churches that exist as part of the breakaway Anglican Church in North America after the 2003 election of Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Church?s first gay bishop. What do you think about this? Do you believe that in time, full acceptance of gay men and lesbians, same-sex marriage and the ordination of gay bishops will no longer be an issue for the church, or any church for that matter?

LA CRESCENTA — St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church has baptized, confirmed and married community members for 85 years, but its time in the Crescenta Valley came to a close Sunday after a court battle left its members with one option: Move out. The congregation split with the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles in 2006 after the diocese ordained a gay bishop. The diocese then argued that it owned the La Crescenta property and sued the congregation, which had realigned with the Anglican Province of Uganda.

LA CRESCENTA — A day after it gained control of St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church, the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles initiated a major property makeover. Landscape workers were busy early Tuesday, using a bulldozer to clear dead plants and tending to a garden that had fallen into poor condition in recent months, said the Right Rev. J. Jon Bruno, bishop of the six-county diocese. “It was sad for me yesterday when I saw how it had fallen into disarray,” said Bruno, who thought the grounds had not been well-managed as the diocese’s court-mandated date for taking over the church approached.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A visiting parishioner stood before the congregation of St. Luke’s Anglican Church, instructed patrons to bring both wrists together as if bound by shackles, and told them to cast the symbolic chains aside. “You’re free,” he said, inside the unfamiliar confines of Seventh Day Adventist Church in Glendale. The Rev. Rob Holman cast a knowing smile over the sermon Sunday, the first since surrendering the keys to the stone-facade church at 2563 Foothill Blvd.

GLENDALE — The California Supreme Court ruled 6-1 Monday that real estate owned by a Newport Beach parish is the property of its national church, from which it broke away in 2006 after a controversial ordination. The ruling from the state’s highest court in Sacramento sent shock waves to three other churches, including one in La Crescenta, where St. Luke’s of the Mountains Anglican Church on Foothill Boulevard had a stake in the matter. Writing for the majority, Justice Ming W. Chin ruled that “the general church, not the local church, owns the property in question.

Late last month the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and Episcopal Bishop J. Jon Bruno filed suit against the priests, wardens and vestry of St. Luke's of the Mountains in an attempt to seize the church's Foothill Boulevard property and its contents. Eric Sohlgren, attorney for St. Luke's, said the lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on April 24 and the church received the lawsuit on April 26. "The claim is basically because this church, for a period of its history, voluntarily associated itself with the Episcopal Church and, as a result [they claim]

LA CRESCENTA — The sanctuary at St. Luke’s of the Mountains Church in recent years regularly hosted around 100 worshipers for weekly services, but a change in congregations has left the site with a lot of room for growth. Fourteen visitors came to the church for a brief service early Sunday, a month after the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles retook the property from the renamed St. Luke’s Anglican Church, which broke from the diocese three years ago. While the turnout was light, with some members traveling ahead of Thanksgiving, the congregation is hoping to slowly grow and rebuild in a place with more than 80 years of history as a home for La Crescenta followers, the Rev. Bryan Jones said.

"The judge ruled in our favor," said Attorney John Shiner, lead council for the Diocese. According to Shiner, Judge John Wiley, of LA Superior Court, came to the same conclusion that presiding Justice David Sills did in the Court of Appeal. "The local church property will be under the control of the National Church," Shiner said.
