The consecration of a new bishop doesn’t happen very often, and when it does it’s a glorious liturgical event. The people of the diocese and the larger church gather and the power of the Holy Spirit is called to fill this new bishop with apostolic fervor. You can expect pageantry, music, prayer and praise. And did I mention preaching? Presiding Bishop Curry will be the presider (although not guaranteed to be the preacher he will surely have some inspiring and spirit-filled words to say!).

We have 20 tickets for the July 8th consecration available to us on a first come, first served basis. Sign up in Yeaton Hall before May 15th!

This week it’s the Road to Emmaus.

This is the last resurrection appearance story we will have this Easter season. So who do you think these disciples were? Do you think they could have been husband and wife? That’s a persistent tradition in the church, although not so much in the artistic tradition—often they are both represented with beards! Read the story and the other readings for this Sunday HERE. I’d be interested in your take on the story.
