A Prayer For This Web Site
Almighty God, you proclaim your truth in every age by many voices; Direct, in our time, we pray, those who speak where many listen and write what many read; that they may do their part in making the heart of this people wise, its mind sound, and its will righteous; to the honor of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
"For those who Influence Public Opinion,"
Book of Common Prayer, page 827

In our church, neither a person's gender nor their sexual orientation matter; what does matter is how they serve Jesus Christ as Lord.

[Episcopal News Service] The seating of the 26th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Nevada Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, will take place at the 11:00 a.m. All Saints service on November 5, at Washington National Cathedral, the day after her investiture.
The service is open to the public but passes will be required. This is a recent change in the cathedral's policy about this service.

To request passes, please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Installation 2006

Please include the number of passes you are requesting (limit of two per request). No group requests will be honored; no e-mail or faxed requests will be honored. Passes will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Instructions for accessing the cathedral will be mailed with the passes.

Jefferts Schori will preside and preach at the service, which will include formally seating her in the Presiding Bishop's official chair.
