"Thrust out a little from the land," (Luke 5:3) and founded upon a rock, may it ever point the way to Heaven and allure men and attract them, win them and fit them and train them for the Temple that is not made with hands." -- Annie Clarkson, 1896.

  • Baptism this Sunday

    Image result for baptism of christ bordone"This act or observance of Baptism consists in being dipped into the water, which covers us completely, and being drawn out again. These two parts, being dipped under the water and emerging from it, indicate the power and effect of Baptism, which is simply the slaying of the old Adam and the resurrection of the new man, both of which actions must continue in us our whole life long….let everybody regard his Baptism as the daily garment which he is to wear all the time.  Every day we should be found in faith and amid its fruits."  - Martin Luther

    Since this Sunday in the season of Epiphany is when we mark the baptism of Jesus, reflected in our Gospel reading, it is an appropriate date on which to celebrate the baptism of Hudson Rumbaugh. 


    The artwork above is Paris Bordone's (1500-1570) "Baptism of Christ" which can be found in the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.

  • Parish Leadership Conference

    Is it possible to have meaningful conversations even if people have vastly differing opinions? Can we disagree, but still love one another? The answer to both of these questions is “yes.”

    At the 2019 Parish Leadership Conferences for the Diocese of Albany you will learn how to set agreed upon guidelines that help to create an environment where your parish can have meaningful and productive conversations, even those that are potentially difficult. We will look to show how we can find common ground through our love of God and use that to show love to one another, even when we disagree.

    After a presentation on this model of conversation, Bishop William Love will offer two teachings on the Great Commandment. First he will discuss what it means to Love God with all of your heart, soul and mind. Then he’ll discuss what it means to love your neighbor as yourself. After each teaching, there will be a time for discussion and an opportunity to use the conversation model presented in the morning. The discussion portion of the afternoon will conclude with an opportunity for parish leaders to discuss difficult issues they are facing in their church and network with others on potential solutions, specifically how to use the conversation model outlined in the teaching back home.

    The entire program takes place in the context of the Eucharist.

    There is no charge to attend. All parish leaders, both clergy and lay persons are encouraged to attend. Registration begins at 8:30 am and the afternoon will conclude by 3:45 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

    Please note, when registering we will ask for email addresses. This is so we can contact you in case there is a need to cancel due to weather.
