A Shepherd on our Darkest Hills

God knows the brokenness of heart and body and mind. Jesus knows our suffering and comes as our shepherd. Guardian of our souls, the watcher in the night, he contends for us. We are being shepherded by no one less than the great shepherd of the cross; through every kind of suffering imaginable. Even now and in this present hour. A sermon from Bishop Doyle given on 1 Peter 2:19-25.

Easter Message for Clergy

Next week we need to think about a few things - but let that be next week. This is Easter. I want to invite you to celebrate the accomplishments you have achieved with God and with your people over the last month. Let us take a minute to celebrate the risen Christ. Let us pause in true Sabbath.

More than Hope: Faith

It's not just about hope; it's about our deep, abiding faith in resurrection and a God who is at work in us and with us to bring light to the darkness.

Stewardship: Building Altars

During times of crisis, we must take care of ourselves; we are also called to care for others. Now more than ever, we must give to those ministries that care for the most vulnerable.

The Good Shepherd
