  • FROM ALPHA TO OMEGA IN A YEAR!
    Bishop Linda’s challenge:
    Let’s read the Bible in one year. Let’s read it every day!
    The Bible is at the heart of our faith, writes Bishop Linda in her message while challenging us to join her in an effort to read the entire biblical text in one year.
    “As we begin a new calendar year I pray that we will commit to reading the Bible − the whole Bible!”
    Join Bishop Linda in reading the Bible in ONE YEAR.
    Use THE BIBLE CHALLENGE as an outline:

    thebiblechallenge.org
    The website posts the scriptures daily and contains study guides for each book of the Bible.

  • On behalf of the Respect Justice Camp planning committee, thank you to Bishop Linda and all those in the Diocese of Huron, especially in the Deanery of Essex who have provided support for our efforts to offer the first Justice Camp in our diocese.
    There has been much excitement about the possibilities for this program and planning has been intense. Unfortunately, faced with low registration for the event, the team has decided it would not be a good use of resources to proceed as originally planned.
    While Respect Justice Camp is now cancelled, those involved in planning remain in discernment about how to best share the work that has been done.  We ask your patience and prayers as we seek the resurrection of the ideal that was behind our willingness to embrace this opportunity.
