bishop     From the Bishop  March 11, 2020

Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7
Dear People of the Diocese of New Jersey,
What now?Following Paul’s guidance takes real work and faith in the midst of the ever-growing Coronavirus pandemic. I suspect we all feel threatened at some level. The COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) is disrupting every aspect of our lives right now. We’ve postponed Diocesan Convention and the Spring Meeting of the House of Bishops was turned into a “virtual meeting” using Zoom technology. Susan and I were supposed to have our 15-year-old granddaughter Emily visit us from Florida this week. We put that off as well. I am sure many of you are experiencing similar disruptions. So how can we not worry?
