Dear Friends in Christ,
As Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reminds us, “If it is not about Love, it is not about God.” The question for St. James, as we continue our journey together, is “What is Love calling us to do? There are no easy answers, and yet we must stay awake and alert to the opportunities we are being given to “welcome all, love all, and serve all.”
