Blessings be upon all in Grace on the doorstep of Passion Sunday and our Holy Week journey.
The past week, the House of Bishops held its spring gathering at Camp Allen, the camp and conference center for the Diocese of Texas. From emerging conversations shared in small settings and companioning, along with moving meditations on Jesus journey to the Cross, and beyond, by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, this letter titled “Episcopal Bishops Issue A Word to the Church” was prayed, shaped, formed, and unanimously approved by the House of Bishops. I invite you to read, mark, and enter in prayer for our common humanity as we are called to be, people of the Word, people of God. I would be happy to have conversations with you as you wish about this important letter for all.
In the days ahead, my prayers surround this parish family, our community, our world, that we may know the power of the resurrection LIVED in us!
With gratefulness, your servant in Christ,
Fr. Paul Gennett, Jr.+
