Dear Companions on the Journey,
You are in my prayers this holiday. I hope your celebrations are filled with love, laughter, and a really good meal! We are a beloved and much blessed people, I pray that each of us will bless one another this holiday and every day.
I offer this blessing for you and your families as you gather to celebrate.
Reflecting on her own experience as a newcomer to this diocese, visiting churches for the first time each Sunday, Bishop Carlye asks "How can we prepare a spot for newcomers and strangers to belong?" (Time: 4:10.)
Today I am 60! Yay for me and for the many groups of people who have helped me get safely to this age. As our nation continues down a path of rationalizing hatred, I cannot help but think about the ways history has affected my life.
In her first post, Bishop Carlye Hughes says, "We have found something together, and we have found something wonderful, and we will continue to find things as God guides us into ministry."
