Happy Summer, Everyone!! A few weeks ago, on June 12, we celebrated the feast of Enmegahbowh. I really didn’t know anything about him until I did some research for a sermon I was preaching that evening. In fact, I couldn’t even pronounce his name!! But after some reading, I learned that he was the first … Continue reading Recognition of the indigenous peoples of our land

How well do we know the workings of The Episcopal Church? Or our own Diocese? I know, for me, it really wasn’t until I began to serve on Diocesan Council that I became interested or even slightly educated about the nuts and bolts of our church. What I have found is so exciting – and, … Continue reading Getting Excited About Mission
It began with a simple request: Let’s meet over lunch and figure out a way to get the word out about Resolutions. Things like this are the nuts and bolts of what makes a diocese operate.
