From the Bishop:


Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. ….get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.
The surest way to suppress our ability to understand the meaning of God and the importance of worship is to take things for granted. Indifference to the sublime wonder of being is the root of sin. Wonder or radical amazement is the chief characteristic of the religious person’s attitude toward history and nature.

This Thanksgiving may you contemplate “the sublime wonder of being”.

Yours in Christ,
