Dear Friends in Christ,   I am writing to you with regret to ask you once more to suspend in-person worship at our churches during the month of July. This decision does not come without significant prayer, discussion, and deep thought. As you may know, the governor of California today instituted broad restrictions on in-person […]

Fertile ground to grow your faith “Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers” (Baptismal Covenant, BCP 304).   Every baptized Christian is called to ministry.  What is yours?  Education for Ministry (EfM) is a program of the School of Theology at the University of […]

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.

Bishop Susan Brown Snook shares: “This Sacred Ground work is holy work – it is how we do the important work of reconciliation that we are all called to experience in Christ and with each other.

For our diocese, one of the hardest consequences of sheltering in place was the suspension of many services to our less fortunate neighbors. Church members bemoaned the fact that Showers of Blessings, food distribution, and other similar efforts needed to wait until the pandemic passes us by. That is because our diocese is deeply committed […]
