Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I send this communication to you while I am presently attending the ACNA College of Bishops Meeting (via Zoom). The violence at our national capital yesterday took place while we, as bishops, were in deliberations to consent to newly elected bishops (bearing witness to the fact that the church’s work goes on). Nevertheless, we paused our deliberations briefly to pray. Archbishop Foley Beach then issued a call for the church to pray. You will find his call to prayer here.
Bishops Guernsey and Dobbs, ACNA bishops in the DC area, prayed this morning the Great Litany* before the National Capital on behalf of our church. I join with our Archbishop to encourage our congregations and parishioners, as they are able, to pray the Great Litany for our nation and for God’s intervention as our society descends into increasingly aggressive actions and suspicion, and where trust of one another continues to be in short supply.
Yours in Christ,
'Join us this Sunday, November 22, 2020, as we, in the #Anglican Diocese of #SouthCarolina, give thanks for the work and #ministry of our #Bishop in the 13th year of his Consecration, the Rt. Rev. Mark Joseph Lawrence' https://t.co/1lQuJWNHeY #lowcountrylife pic.twitter.com/jAmqhJtT06
