As the concern about the COVID-19 outbreak spreads, and as we begin to suspect that there are many more cases in our communities than are yet known, I would like our churches to update their preparations for this disease. Although, for most people, the illness poses a low risk, for the elderly, vulnerable, and immunocompromised […]

This past Saturday night, February 29th, 43 youth from 12 congregations in our diocese gathered at St. Paul’s Cathedral for Nightwatch–an annual event that takes place during Lent. This year’s theme was Leap of Faith!  The evening began with a few hours of crazy fun, which included an inflatable Velcro wall in the middle of […]

Dear Friends, As reports of coronavirus increase in the United States and elsewhere, we in the Diocese of San Diego should consider how our faith communities should respond. It is difficult to say now whether the new virus will have a significant impact here. However, it is certainly a good time for us to review […]

Our calendar of saints remembers Leo the Great today, even though I don’t think there’s a single Episcopal church named for him. He lived from about 400 to 461, at a time when the Roman Empire was falling apart. He was well-educated and was ordained a deacon to serve as a financial administrator and ensure […]

Good afternoon, fearless love diocese! This diocese may be headquartered in San Diego, yet we include communities from as far north as Lake Elsinore, Menifee, and Hemet, east to Indio, Brawley, and Yuma, and south to the border. In earlier days, this might have been called the southmost diocese in upper California. How we name […]

When we join together and work as one, we can accomplish more than we can as Episcopal islands in our separate communities. Your donation to the bishop’s appeal sends an important message of support during this episcopate transition. It tells our next bishop, whomever she or he may be, that we love and care for […]

During this time while many congregations are thinking about their 2019 budgets and the Supreme Court is in flux, it’s wise to keep this in the back of your minds. Periodically, there are movements to eliminate the clergy housing allowance, which is part of the clergy person’s compensation that is not subject to federal income […]

Wilderness represents to many an untamed world beyond our reach. To others, it is a mysterious and scary state of being. Dr. Brené Brown, author and vulnerability researcher, found that while people describe their own wilderness as being uncontrolled and vast they also find it to be “a place of true belonging, and the bravest […]

I had a fascinating and provocative meeting with representatives of the Church Pension Fund last week.  The purpose was to keep dioceses updated about current realities across The Episcopal Church.  They had some very important information about trends in congregational life, ordination, clergy compensation, and medical insurance. This diocese has a significantly higher average congregational […]

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church began demolition today of its original church building on the corner of Thirtieth and Gunn Streets. The additional space will significantly expand St. Luke’s participation in an innovative urban farming and culinary arts job training program for refugee women and youth run by the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Begun in April, […]
