Dear Clergy and People of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina,
I encourage all in every parish and worship community to celebrate the Feast of Bishop William Alexander Guerry on Sunday, June 25. This is an excellent opportunity for teaching and for offering a clear historical context for one of the ways we have been at our best in the Episcopal Church as witnesses to the liberating Gospel of Jesus.
Tell the story. Gather folks for a conversation before or after the liturgy. Preach boldly. Materials have been posted on our website that you can use for your bulletins along with propers for the day.
May our eyes and ears be opened that we too might be set free as ambassadors of God’s “healing words of forgiveness.”
Blessings to all in Christ,
