The Consecration will be held on June 27, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
The Seating will take place on January 9, 2021
It is with both sadness and joy that I write to tell you that, with my election as Bishop Coadjutor, God is bringing my ministry with All Saints to an end. My last Sunday will be April 19, 2020. My duties at the Bishop’s office at Carpenter House in Birmingham will begin on May 15. As I live into this new reality, I am joyful because, during our time together, we have seen our parish grow in size, depth and spirit.
We’ve raised up our littlest ones in the faith, cared for each other in sickness and health, studied together, praised God and worshiped together faithfully, bound by love as the Body of Christ. As we’ve labored to serve the least among us and the least in the world, even in faraway places, we have trusted God Almighty to provide what was needed for our common life. God will provide a new, talented person to lead you. In the meantime, Charles, Seth, Mike, and our ministries will continue to take God’s love into the world.
We have dared to hope in hard times, in sorrow, and need that the love of God would prevail, and that’s been true. You’ve blessed me and my family with great acceptance, and reliable, nurturing love. Saying goodbye to you as your Rector is and will be sad. In the days to come, we will ask God to help us with grace as we grieve and also celebrate our extraordinary ministry together. I will also remain profoundly grateful for the immeasurable blessings of these past fifteen plus years. All Saints is home to me, and God willing that will not change as I answer this new call as Bishop Coadjutor. As always, I hope I see you at church, soon!
