The Episcopal Church. Love God, love your neighbor, change the world.
Operating as usual
This afternoon Bishop Hunn ordained Cindy Lose, Katie Hudak, and Nancy Atrim to the Sacred Order of Deacons just outside of Guadalupe Mountain National Park near Salt Flat, Tx.
Originally scheduled to be held at St. Francis on the Hill in El Paso, current levels of Covid spread in El Paso required a change of plans to a safer (and memorable!) location.
Welcome our new Deacons to the DRG!
(We will have a video up as soon as we can tomorrow!)
[10/17/20] Due to current rates of Covid spread in El Paso, the location this afternoon’s ordination has been changed, and we will be unable to livestream. A recording of the ordination will be available tomorrow morning, and will be posted here.
Delegates from the Diocese of the Rio Grande are meeting in Special Session at Sagebrush Community Church to authorize a digital Annual Convention.

Please take some time to pray for the Clergy of the DRG this week!

Weekly Update : Making Tough Decisions Together Will Strengthen Our Ministry and Our Faith
Canon Lee Curtis brings an important update from the Borderlands.

Episcopal Migration Ministries recommends making points like this:
-We have domestic and international law protecting the rights of the world’s most vulnerable to apply for asylum.
-This proposed rule would put families seeking protection along the U.S. southern border in further danger.
-Attempts to block asylum seekers from entering the U.S. are concerning to me as a person of faith and an American.
-Our nation is not living up to the commitment to be a beacon of liberty and hope for all people.
We are tarnishing our reputation as a world leader committed to human rights and upholding dignity.

My heart grieves as yet again peaceful protests in Albuquerque ended in violence - this time with a man being shot by another citizen.
Self-styled “militias” have no place in our country and they do not keep the peace. The presence of people dressed for war is intended to bring the threat of violence to bear. That menacing threat is violent in and of itself.
We as New Mexicans need to have the conversation about the place that Conquistadores like Juan de Oñate have in our history and in our public squares.
In this moment people are feeling great pain and sometimes we human beings express our pain by inflicting fear or pain on others.
In this moment people are feeling threatened and often threatened human beings use violence or the threat of violence as a means of self defense.
We need to hear the deep pain of our Native neighbors whose ancestors were brutalized by Oñate's rule. Their voice is crying out against the destruction of their people in centuries past and by current injustices. The cultures of native peoples must be honored.
We need to hear our Hispanic and Latino neighbors who are also crying out that their culture and heritage not be destroyed. We must search for ways to honor our diverse heritages while also being honest about the violence of our history.
We need to have this conversation in a way that brings healing and hope to New Mexico. Without glorifying past violence. Without engaging in violence ourselves. With love and respect for our neighbors.
The history of New Mexico is deep, hard, filled with much beauty and pain and it is still unfolding. I am personally committed to this conversation and I offer the support of the Diocese of the Rio Grande to this important work.
Join us for Bishop Hunn's digital visitation at Holy Spirit in Gallup.
Statement from Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry on President Donald Trump's use of a church building and the Holy Bible.
This evening, the President of the United States stood in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church, lifted up a bible, and had pictures of himself taken. In so doing, he used a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes. This was done in a time of deep hurt and pain in our country, and his action did nothing to help us or to heal us.
The bible teaches us that “God is love.” Jesus of Nazareth taught, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” The prophet Micah taught that the Lord requires us to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.”
The bible the President held up and the church that he stood in front of represent the values of love, of justice, of compassion, and of a way to heal our hurts.
We need our President, and all who hold office, to be moral leaders who help us to be a people and nation living these values. For the sake of George Floyd, for all who have wrongly suffered, and for the sake of us all, we need leaders to help us to be “one nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all.”
