Call to Prayer

Grace and peace to you from The Lord Jesus Christ.  I am writing to you after hearing the terrible news about yet another mass shooting in which lives of many young people were lost.  It is impossible to imagine the trauma that this act of violence has caused.  I call all of you to a time of prayer for the people affected by this tragedy and for this world of ours that often turns to violence as a response to anger and pain.  May we be instruments of peace.

  1. Thank you, Bishop. We spent quite a bit of time at both Bushkill and Chapman in prayer on Sunday and it was the focus of the message. I understand CT churches are being asked to toll their bells on Friday morning and we will, too.
