Our Rector is in Oklahoma City this week with Bishop Mark Beckwith and bishops, clergy and laity from around the Episcopal Church for a gathering to discuss Episcopal Church responses to the epidemic of violence in the United States. The gathering will include the presence of the Most Rev’d Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Most Rev’d Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. At Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace: An Episcopal Gathering to Challenge the Epidemic of Violence, Episcopalians will come together to renew their commitment to the Gospel call to make peace in a world of violence.
Thanks to very generous donations and a strong response to the Confirmation Class’ bake sale at both Christ Church and Church of the Incarnation (where two of the class members attend), the class will now be able to sponsor a donkey, plow and cart for women farmers in a country where these items are in demand. According to Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD), donkeys are smaller and less expensive than oxen, making them easier for women to acquire and manage. The plow and cart allow for greater productivity and potential income if rented to others.
