By the Rt. Rev. Michael Smith: A few days ago, I went to see the newly released movie “Just Mercy.” It is an inspiring film based on the true story of Walter McMillian, an African American man on death row unjustly convicted of killing a white woman in 1986, and his defense attorney, Bryan Stevenson. With this narrative fresh in my mind and the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday just around the corner, I cannot help but reflect on the evil of racism. I share some of my thoughts with you.

Merry Christmas!

The Christmas story is so familiar, it’s easy to forget it turns the whole world upside down.

This is God taking the risk not just of being a vulnerable human baby – but being born in the last place you’d expect to find him.

Picture the scene of Jesus’ birth - dirty, makeshift, less-than-ideal. Perhaps embarrassing or shameful for Mary and Joseph. But God just wanted to be with us.

This is God saying there are no people I will refuse to love.

This is God saying there are no places I won’t bless.

This is God saying whoever is outcast, you will find me among them.

This is God saying things don’t have to be neat and tidy for me to love them.

God meets us wherever we are, however messy. If you’re embarrassed or ashamed, God is neither.

So whatever your Christmas looks like – full of joy or sadness, surrounded by people or alone – my prayer is that you know this: God is with you. That’s what “Immanuel” means – “God with us”. That’s the miracle.

Wherever you are, I wish you a Happy Christmas.

Blessings,

++Justin

St. Luke's in Dallas is thriving, worshipping the Lord, and staying mission-focused as they work through repairs after a tornado wrecked havoc on the education building. We support and love you St. Luke's!

Luke, the physician and follower of Jesus, was a great writer and storyteller. After his Gospel, he set about to tell the story of how the Holy Spirit continued to work through the movement Jesus had initiated. AspACTS will delve into this resource of immense value as that movement, the Church, continues to carry out its witness today.

It has been almost three years since Sally and I left for our retirement home near The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee and it has taken about that long to “live” into our retirement. It seems we are slowly finding our way from the hustle and bustle of corporate lives, mine in church ministry and hers in the university community. It really is nice not to have a schedule seven days a week!

Way to Go, Bishop Sumner!

Happy Labor Day!!

Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another that all we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide us in the work we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good; and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor, make us mindful of the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for those who are out of work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Hymn society tournament reveals ‘greatest hymn of all time’ - Religion News Service

https://religionnews.com/2019/07/19/hymn-society-tournament-reveals-greatest-hymn-of-all-time/

religionnews.com (RNS) — More than 800 people, mostly members of the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada, voted during the competition that featured brackets similar to the springtime NCAA basketball tradition.

This Much We Can Agree On...

The Church can be neither red nor blue. Nor are bishops political commentators. And fixing America’s immigration system is a complicated question, which I hope we can get back to, someday, in a bipartisan way.
Still, it is good to state some simple moral truths that ought to be self-evident to all, whatever one’s politics. Increasing or prolonging the suffering of children for the sake of political leverage is wrong. When local residents of both parties want to give children in detention and distress diapers, soap, and toothpaste, the correct response is ‘yes, thanks.’ Contra Stephen Miller, brutality is not a policy. Should the above not seem clear, I would worry over the morally corrosive effect on us.
Often Scripture exhorts us to care for the sojourner; we are also to pray for all, including the enemy (per Jesus) and Caesar (per Paul). Practical local efforts like those of Gateway of Grace are to be commended. We should also pray for the President, the parties, the Congress, those who work at the border, and the refugees, that we all might be preserved by God’s unmerited grace, and that we might live in this harsh time according to the ‘angels of our better nature.’

Peace, GRS
