FROM THE INTERIM RECTOR
Two items have come to me in the past week from The Episcopal Church that I'd like to share. The first, as mentioned during announcements last Sunday, is a new video from our Presiding Bishop, the Most Rev. Michael Curry. In this video he talks in more depth about what he means when he talks about being the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. Both the video and the transcript can be found at http://episcopaldigitalnetwork.com/ens/2016/09/15/video-michael-curry-on-loving-liberating-and-life-giving/. As has been true of his other videos, this is a moving and engaging glimpse into who our Presiding Bishop is, as well as an expansion on the Jesus Movement as "loving, liberating and life-giving." It's well worth a few minutes of your time!
The second is a "Word to the Church" issued by the House of Bishops from their meeting this week in Detroit. It is a word of encouragement in this trouble time of violent protests and divisive political rhetoric. The letter may be found here: http://www.nhepiscopalnews.org/ and includes a link to a video in which our own Bishop Rob appears. Print copies will be available on Sunday for those who would like one.
May God bless you this day and in the days to come,
