Statement from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry on President Donald Trump's use of a church building and the Holy Bible.

Statement from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry on President Donald Trump's use of a church building and the Holy Bible.

This evening, the President of the United States stood in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church, lifted up a bible, and had pictures of himself taken. In so doing, he used a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes. This was done in a time of deep hurt and pain in our country, and his action did nothing to help us or to heal us.

The bible teaches us that “God is love.” Jesus of Nazareth taught, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” The prophet Micah taught that the Lord requires us to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.”

The bible the President held up and the church that he stood in front of represent the values of love, of justice, of compassion, and of a way to heal our hurts.

We need our President, and all who hold office, to be moral leaders who help us to be a people and nation living these values. For the sake of George Floyd, for all who have wrongly suffered, and for the sake of us all, we need leaders to help us to be “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”

The Episcopal Church

A word to the Church from our Presiding Bishop.

A word to the Church from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry:

“Our long-term commitment to racial justice and reconciliation is embedded in our identity as baptized followers of Jesus. We will still be doing it when the news cameras are long gone.”

In the midst of COVID-19 and the pressure cooker of a society in turmoil, a Minnesota man named George Floyd was brutally killed. His basic human dignity was stripped by someone charged to protect our common humanity.

Perhaps the deeper pain is the fact that this was not an isolated incident. It happened to Breonna Taylor on March 13 in Kentucky. It happened to Ahmaud Arbery on February 23 in Georgia. Racial terror in this form occurred when I was a teenager growing up black in Buffalo, New York. It extends back to the lynching of Emmett Till in 1955 and well before that. It’s not just our present or our history. It is part of the fabric of American life.

A Message from Bishop Goff on today's National Day of Mourning and Lament for those who have died of COVID-19.

A Message from Bishop Goff on today's National Day of Mourning and Lament For those who have died of COVID-19

Dear Friends in Christ,
Last Monday, Memorial Day, we remembered the men and women of our nation who died in service to their country, giving thanks for their witness, their lives and their sacrifices. In the time of pandemic, we honored them without our customary parades and ceremonies, but with heartfelt prayer. Today we commemorate another day of memorial, a National Day of Mourning and Lament for those who have died in our nation of COVID-19 since it first came to our shores in the winter. By the middle of May, the novel coronavirus had killed more Americans than the Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan War, and Iraq War combined. The more than 100,000 people confirmed to have died in the US in this pandemic are our siblings, our parents and grandparents, our children and friends. We mourn them. We pray for them. We pray for their loved ones. We grieve together for each life lost.

We also recognize and acknowledge growing statistics which demonstrate that COVID-19 has taken the lives of brown and black persons in numbers that are disproportionate to the population. This reality lays bear the inequities in our social and political structures as surely as the recent killings of unarmed black men has done. We grieve our brokenness. We grieve divisions. We grieve our losses.

In our grief, we turn to God in prayer. Pray this day for:
All who have died of COVID-19
The loved ones of those who have died
All who are ill with COVID-19
All who are afraid
Healthcare workers who are on the front lines of response
Researchers and scientists who seek treatments and an effective vaccine
Civic leaders who seek to offer sound wisdom and guidance
Funeral industry workers
All whose jobs put them in harm's way during this time

Let us also pray for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and all who have died in racial violence. Let us commit ourselves to the Way of Love for the healing of our nation. Our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, offers concrete actions that are deeply rooted in our faith in the living, breathing, loving Christ. (Read his op/ed article in yesterday's Washington Post, linked in the comments below.)

Let us pray.
God of all hope, God of all goodness, we are a people hurting, lost and divided. Our world seems a strange and foreign land, our days a blur of separation and isolation. Gather us to your very heart as we pray for our nation, receive all who have died into the fulness of your heaven, guide the hands of all who serve others. Bless our efforts to love all people in concrete action and, in your powerful ways and in your perfect time, make us whole for the sake of a world so desperately in need of You. Amen.

Faithfully yours,

The Rt. Rev. Susan E. Goff
Bishop Suffragan and Ecclesiastical Authority

Opinion | As a black man, I understand the anger in our streets. But we must still choose love.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has written an op-ed published in today's Washington Post.

washingtonpost.com The dangers facing young black men are real, and that should frustrate us. But that frustration must not lead to despair that we are condemned to live this way forever.

Pentecost Prayer Message from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has joined other faith leaders in calling for a national day of mourning and lament on June 1 as the United States exceeds 100,000 documented deaths from COVID-19, and he invites us to commemorate the victims during worship services this weekend.

“I encourage Episcopalians to join with other people of faith this weekend to grieve and honor those who have died from COVID-19,” said Bishop Curry. “Let this tragic moment not pass without us honoring the many among us who have lost their lives or lost their loved ones and commending them and ourselves to God’s love and peace."

Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Book of Common Prayer, pg. 823):

Sermons from the Bishop’s Online Chapel: Ascension Day

We wanted to share with you the Bishop's "bonus sermon" for Ascension Day. While we may not be joining together in body, please do join together in spirit.

It’s one of our principal feasts, and just like Christmas is a principal feast, and Easter and All Saints Day, so is the Feast of the Ascension.

It's the occasion on which the risen Christ is taken into heaven after appearing to his followers for forty days (Acts 1:1-11, Mk 16:19). The Ascension marks the conclusion of Jesus' post-resurrection appearances. It is the final elevation of his human nature to divine glory and the near presence of God. The Ascension is affirmed by the Nicene and Apostles' Creeds ("He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God..."

Grant, we pray, Almighty God, that as we believe your only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to have ascended into heaven, so we may also in heart and mind there ascend, and with him continually dwell; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
https://youtu.be/IO7b2tQj3rU

The sermon for Ascension Day is delivered by the Rt. Rev. Susan E. Goff, Bishop Suffragan and Ecclesiastical Authority.

Calendar of the Church Year

Oh, my goodness. This is the SIXTH Sunday of Easter? How many are there, anyhow? Well, the feast of Easter is a season of fifty days, from Easter Eve through the Day of Pentecost ("pentecost" means "fiftieth day"). So...there are seven days in a week; divide 50 by 7 and you get...um, 7...so next week is the Seventh Sunday of Easter and May 31 is Pentecost! www.episcopalchurch.org/calendar-church-year

"I think God would take such delight if I
would do the happy dance of thanksgiving before every meal.
I think God would take such delight if I
would rest on God's lap in a warm puddle of trust.
I think God would take such delight if I
would slow down and notice the sights
and sounds and smells all around.
I think I would, too.
Sometimes a dog can point me to God."

Bishop Goff asks: "Who is teaching you the simple things in this age of Coronavirus. Who is pointing you to God?"

Bishop Goff's Meditation for the Fifth Week of Easter: Sometimes my dog points me to God.

There are three things that our sweet Chihuahua, Georgia, delights in doing above all else: eating, sleeping and going for a walk. I suppose that makes her pretty much like every other dog, although Tom and I think she's quite remarkable. She is, in fact, one apt teacher.

Georgia has a built-in clock. She knows exactly, to the minute, when it's time for her noon treat and her 5 p.m. supper. She knows exactly! Even as the light changes with the seasons, even when we adjust the hour hand on the clocks, she knows. At one minute before the appointed hour, she spins and leaps at our feet in her "feed me NOW" dance. Typically, I'm in the middle of something that seems vitally important and the first steps of her dance come as an annoying interruption, but Georgia will not be ignored; the enthusiasm of her full body wag becomes contagious.

Our pup sleeps with abandon, too, and her favorite place to sleep is on my lap. (She's figured out how to fit herself onto the same lap that is also holding a laptop.) Her warm little body in sleep seems to have no bones, no muscles, but is simply a limp puddle of relaxed.

Our daily walks are the highlight of her day. Once Tom and I have put shoes on our feet and a harness on Georgia, I'm ready to move and get some exercise. Georgia, on the other hand, has something else in mind. Even though her short legs can keep up with my long stride, her idea of a walk has little to do with exercise. Instead, she's all about sussing out which dogs and cats and squirrels and birds were there before her. She takes it all in through a nose that leads her in zigzag patterns around the neighborhood. "Who trained you?" I ask her nearly every day.

I think God would take such delight if I
would do the happy dance of thanksgiving before every meal.
I think God would take such delight if I
would rest on God's lap in a warm puddle of trust.
I think God would take such delight if I
would slow down and notice the sights
and sounds and smells all around.
I think I would, too.

Sometimes a dog can point me to God.

Who is teaching you the simple things in this age of Coronavirus.
Who is pointing you to God?
