A Letter Concerning the Death of​ George Floyd and so Many Others

Body

This letter is signed by Bishops Jim Hobby, Todd Hunter, Stewart Ruch and Steve Wood

George Floyd was made in the image of God and as such is a person of utmost value. This is not true because a few Anglican Bishops issue a letter. This conviction arises from our reading of Scripture. The Psalmist said:

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.​I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
(Psalm 139:13-14)

Gathering 2020: Diocesan Conference & Convention is a safe place to learn, fellowship, worship corporately and do the annual business of the diocese (aka, Convention). The Bishop and Diocesan Leaders determined the COVID-19 quarantine limitations create an inadequate planning window and we could not produce the event as described. Therefore, it is with lament we announce there will not be a Gathering 2020.

By the Rt. Rev. James L Hobby, Jr. 

Since I grew up in a lot of places (3 grade schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 high schools) and have lived in many parts of the country (the Midwest, the East Coast, New England, the South, and Southwestern PA), I have lived my life as a stranger and alien. When people ask me where I'm from, I give a travelogue instead of an address.
