My eldest son is among the graduates of the Class of 2020. He had his last day of high school and didn’t even know it.

We need multiple participants during worship. We rely on lectors, intercessors, preachers, celebrants, and many more for a Sunday service to go ‘just right.’  During our current season of prevention, many of us are streaming services, some even twice a day, and our congregations have grown into global communities using Facebook Live, YouTube, Instagram Live, […]

  My friends in the Diocese of San Diego, These are frightening times. The State of California is now under a mandatory stay-at-home order from the governor.

My Friends in the Diocese of San Diego, As you know, we are facing an unprecedented health crisis in our world because of the new coronavirus.
