Rejoice, Pray and Live Thankfully

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Dear saints,

We had a rich 86th Convention of the Diocese. We prayed, engaged, sang, gave, broke bread, celebrated, listened and learned together. Thank you all for your prayers. I thank the delegates, guests and all the leaders for their role in helping us do some good work together. All good wishes and prayers for our elected and appointed bodies as they organize themselves and help govern us. May we steward our relationships as leaders and followers of Christ who move forward together!

A Note from Bishop Singh Regarding Sutherland Springs

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Dear saints,

God our refuge and strength,

You have bound us together in a common life:

Help us, in the midst of our present conflict

to confront one another without hatred or bitterness

to listen for your voice amid competing claims

and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
