"On the Imitation of Christ" - Letter to Clergy from Interim Bishop Minns


Ad Clerum ["to the clergy"] on the Imitation of Christ

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is a great privilege to be able to serve with you during this interim season and Angela, Rachel and I are very much looking forward to being with you physically once restrictions on travel and meetings abate. I did, however, enjoy meeting many of you through the clergy Zoom calls before Christmas and I plan to hold another series of calls in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I want to use these letters to introduce myself a little more.
