Good morning Clergy, Threshold Evangelists and Parish Office Administrators,
With the conclusion of General Synod and as members from this diocese travel back home today, Bishop Edwards wishes to let you know that he will release an official statement in the coming days to be read at all services this Sunday.
He would also ask that you let people know that he is available to meet with anyone who wishes to speak to him about Synod. Please put this invitiation into the bulletin and communicate as you normally would. Note that the bishop is available starting tomorrow.
Please contact the office at 459-1801 ext. 4 to make an appointment. If anyone is not able to be in either of these locations, they can speak to him by phonel. Please call to make a phone appointment for this as well.
He will be in Fredericton on Thursday, July 14 and Monday, July 18.
He will be in Saint John on Friday, July 15 and Tuesday, July 19.
Blessings to all as we continue to pray for each other in our shared work of ministry,
WHEN YOU … listen with all your heart • honour your elders • encourage young people to take over the church often and loudly • choose good over evil • welcome the stranger • write the government about the issues that matter • invite a co-worker to church • help your dad do housework • get messy with your Sunday school kids • say “Thank you Lord” and mean it • Tweet your blessings one by one • introduce your grandchildren to nature • read and share God’s word •
…THEN YOU ARE LIVING THE MARKS OF MISSION www.anglican.ca/marks
