Presiding bishop calls Episcopalians to ‘A Season of Prayer for Revival’

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry invites Episcopalians to mark the season after Pentecost with 30 days of prayer leading up to and encompassing the 80th General Convention in Baltimore, Maryland. The 80th General Convention is scheduled for July 8-11.
 
“A Season of Prayer for Revival”—from June 12 through July 11—will feature daily prayers drawn from the Book of Common Prayer. Individuals can sign up online to receive the prayers and inspirational messages via email. The prayers will also be posted daily on social media accounts for The Episcopal Church and Forward Movement.
 
“As we move toward and adapt to a shorter, smaller General Convention, I invite every Episcopalian . . . to pause each day just for a moment to pray for the expansive, reviving power of the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and minds,” Curry said. “We are people of common prayer; may we embrace this season as an opportunity for us all to become a church that truly lives, looks, and loves like Jesus.”

A Pastoral Word from the Bishop: Overturning Roe v. Wade 

To: All the faithful
Re: Supreme Court overturn of Roe v. Wade
Date: June 25, 2022

Friends,

We are faced with another painful decision from the Supreme Court. The first has made it easier to carry a weapon in public spaces. The second takes away the right of every woman to decide reproductive health care. Both are life and death decisions that will negatively impact many, many people. This may be a time of tears and bitter disappointment for you. It may also be a time of anger and frustration. It is, in either event, a very sad time for our republic.

I commend to you the message from our Presiding Bishop. Bishop Curry has expressed grave disappointment and acknowledges the impact this reversal will have in the lives of the poor.

Because we follow Jesus, we do not give up hope. And because we promise to “uphold the dignity of every human being,” we will not accept the injustice created by this act. May God give us the wisdom needed for the path ahead.

Faithfully in Christ,

The Rt. Rev. Douglas J. Fisher
Bishop of Western Massachusetts
