Bishop Duncan’s Easter Message

Easter Sunday this year is the 12th of April.  Lent will be behind us and for most of the world the Coronavirus, COVID-19 has taken center stage.  We are all likely to feel afraid and vulnerable.  Kathy and I have moved into the mode of staying home and going out as little as possible.  A form of “self-isolation.”  We have tried to keep a “Good Lent” and by our usual standards we could not do it.  Churches closed for worship, no special Lenten events and hospitals not open for visitations to the sick.  In most Dioceses churches went online...

Christmas 2019

Dear Sisters in Christ, Soon we will leave the Season of Advent preparation and begin the joy of celebrating the Christmas Season, the time of our Savior Jesus’ birth.  For us we gather as we are able to hear and tell the story of the birth of God’s Son.  He came into the world being born of/in our human flesh by the power of the Holy Spirit. He was born as all of us are born.  Is it any wonder that over the two thousand years since that event we are still amazed and give thanks to God for...

PENTCOST 2019 Sisters in Christ,     We come into the Season of Pentecost full speed ahead. The Easter Season is behind us and we now move into what some refer to as “ordinary time” which will guide us all the way to the Season of Advent. It is a rich time of listening and hearing the Gospel proclamation with and from “regular people” and how they are transformed by their faith in the Risen Christ. These Gospels are to help us, to assist us with how the early Church understood “The Salvation Story.” They help us as community to go deeper into what...

Easter (C) 2019

One of the wonderful joys of Easter is that it is a Season: 50 days to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Christ’s victory over the power of sin, evil and death.We celebrate those seven Sundays during which the early Church commemorated/remembered together in community what took place following Jesus’s death and burial. Christ was experienced physically by those who knew Him. There is a power in those stories and there is hope and joy.Every year we share those stories (that Central Story in/of our faith) with each other and the world. We can only tell the...

Open Wide the Window of our Spirits

Lent 2019 We will soon be entering the Season of Lent. Lent is not only a time for us personally to look inward as it were “soul searching” but it is also the Church inviting us corporately and collectively as the People of God to introspection and study. It is not meant to be just passive or static. It is calling us into discernment about we are as the Body of Christ and individually as a follower of Jesus Christ. For me each Lent has usually been a time fo growth. Not always profound but always something I can...
