From the Rector: Where Do You Go to Church? - Grace Episcopal Church Dear Friends in Christ, What church do you go to? It sounds like a simple question on the surface.

Congrats Grace School graduates, and blessings as you begin the 6th grade this fall!

The 2020-21 school year was a year they will never forget. We are so proud of our fifth grade graduates for navigating a school year unlike any other with incredible grace. It was clear from their graduation speeches that while it may not have been the fifth grade year they expected, it was still a GREAT one and there is so much joy to be found in being together.

We wish them well on their new adventures 🎓 They are ready!

News from Fr. Jason:

Dear people of Grace Church,

I have been called by Bishop Peter Eaton to serve as Canon Missioner for Congregational Vitality and Transitions in the Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida beginning in September. I am grateful for this exciting opportunity to serve God and the wider Church in such a unique way at the diocesan level.

I am especially thankful for the past two years here at Grace, likely two of the most challenging years in recent history, both at Grace and in the world. Serving alongside all of you during this difficult time of transition and pandemic has taught me so much about courage, about endurance, and about God’s abundant presence in the world. Each and every one of you has made me a better priest through your service to the community, your faithful worship, and your witness to God’s love in this world – I will carry you with me always.

I have so enjoyed working with Mother Anne since she arrived in January, and I'm thankful for her guidance and support during this time of discernment around this new call in the Diocese of Southeast Florida. Grace Church is poised and ready for this next chapter with amazing leadership, both lay and clergy, and amazing parishioners who continuously give so graciously of your time, talent, and treasure.

Grace is a uniquely beautiful place, and I am fortunate to have spent over four years here with all of you, both as a seminarian and as a priest. Thank you. I will keep you all in my prayers as I go.

With much love and many blessings,

Jason+
The Rev. Jason Roberson, Associate Rector

Dear Friends in Christ,

I know you are, like me, deeply saddened by the news of Father Jason’s departure. He has been a rock for this community during the past two years of transition, pandemic, and upheaval. He has been a rock for me, personally, in the four and a half months that I have been at Grace Church. His love and faithfulness have sustained us all.

But I hope that you will also be, like me, deeply joyful for this new chapter in his life. The presence of the Holy Spirit is palpable in this call. Jason’s gifts for innovation, problem-solving, and transformative relationships—gifts that he brought to Grace and which have been strengthened by this time here—will serve him well. The wider church sorely needs these abilities, and he will do much good with them.

Jason’s last Sunday with us will be August 8. We love him well, and we will of course send him off well, too. More details about a celebration will come—as will more details about our next steps in searching for new clergy.

With love to each of you, and in the love of Christ that binds us all,

Anne+
The Rev. Anne Turner, Rector
