Racial Reconciliation Resources

The Diocese has reorganized their Becoming Beloved Community page and placed it front and center on their website in order to highlight all of the resources for our ongoing work of dismantling systemic racism. There are many new resources including those for children and youth. 
Becoming Beloved Community is a primary focus of our Presiding Bishop and for the past five years, it is has been a primary missional focus for our diocese, as outlined in our Mission Action Plan. This justice work is all the more critical as we seek to respond to this current moment of disease and disruption.
Strive for Justice and Peace
Respecting the Dignity of Every Human Being.
Come, Holy Spirit, Come.
“In this time of great disruption and loss, we need the Holy Spirit’s grace to heal our blindness and our growing divisions. We cannot get there on our own. For sure, people of faith and goodwill will need to join together in bold new ways to move forward, but we are going to need the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Only the rush of Her renewing breath will be able to heal the congestion that is poisoning the lungs of our common life. We mightily need the ventilation of God’s Holy Spirit to lift us beyond our current anxiety, panic, political dysfunction and menacing racial division.”
If you have not watched it already, I encourage you to watch my message regarding our continuing work for racial reconciliation under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit.

  Music Care Ministry

I’m grateful to share music visits via FaceTime & Skype with my residents/patients in some healthcare communities in which I regularly work, but can’t physically visit now, due to COVID-19 restrictions. We’re sharing interactive visits as residents can request their favorite songs & even sing along. The best gift is seeing their smiles & eyes light up with surprise! Let’s stay connected – message Susan Carol if you’d like a virtual harp visit. I hope to offer some peace & joy in this extraordinary time. Thank you, Joshua Cruse, for helping test the process (he’s in the photos below). This is my lovely Dusty Strings Cherry FH-36S harp!
