First Steps

Two things well worth reading were released today:

First, a succinct, straightforward, pastoral statement from Executive Council as they began discussing how the Episcopal Church might best respond to the Primates' Communiqué.

Second, our Presiding Bishop's beautiful sermon delivered at St. Michael and All Angels, Portland.

This is how our Church prepares to make decisions: in conciliar ways that bring together lay and ordained in careful, thoughtful conversation engaging across a wide variety of perspectives; in theological ways by reflecting on our holy texts in the context of liturgy and prayer.

May the Spirit work in our midst.
