Beloved St. John’s community,

As you know, “rest” is a spiritual practice—not just any practice, but one of the seven pillars of Christian faith and tradition. Even God had to rest after six days of creating the world! Since I’m away for ten days to tend to family medical needs, I’m taking this week as a sabbath from writing my rector’s reflection. However, please read our Bishop Craig Loya’s words here. I pray they refresh and inspire you. I look forward to connecting with you when I return!

Faithfully, in Christ’s love,


What Does Love Look Like?
