  • A Lenten Message from the Bishop

    Dear Friends in Christ, Once again it is my duty and privilege to invite you to the observance of a holy Lent. As we continue to make our on-going journey from glory to glory together, this Season now comes as an important invitation to a renewed intentionality about nurturing and deepening our spiritual life. One aid to that work that I commend to you is the current Bishop’s Book (which also happens to be the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book) I Am With You, by Kathryn Greene-McCreight.

  • A Christmas Message From the Bishop

    Dear Friends in Christ, Grace and peace to you, as once again we come to Christmas. Once again, we are invited to the stable and to the manger. We, who are moved by the plight of Syrian refugees, troubled by the rising tide of violence in our homeland, concerned about the health of our planet or find this a time of struggle or loss, see that God has already reached out to us, as we reach out to God for help.

  • Special Advent Message From the Bishop

    Dear Friends in Christ, Grace and peace to you, and blessings as we enter the Season of Advent. I hope that your Thanksgiving is joyous, and both a happy reminder of God's providence and an encouragement to have effective compassion for those in need. Advent now invites us to prepare to receive Christ, by choosing the way of His Light, in a world that also contains darkness.
