Bishop's Easter Monday Message

We're all doing the best we can!

Happy Easter and congratulations on getting through to Easter Monday! Many of you, both clergy and laity, have been working so hard to present Holy Week and Easter services throughout these challenging and very different times.

Many of you are learning new technological skills (myself included–although I’m not sure I’ve learned them well enough yet), all to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to those around you—and probably many people who don’t normally come to your church.

You’ve come to this point, the day after Easter, not without moments of frustration, possibly tears, and even some blunders, like the family cat starts crying in the background or a palm branch catches on fire during a livestream! But maybe when things don't go as planned, we can laugh at our mistakes, share them, and acknowledge we are all just trying to do the best we can! That's the grace in Easter.

Happy Easter!
