Bless the children: What Jesus would say about getting a COVID-19 vaccination

In his just-published op-ed in USA TODAY, Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry shares what receiving the polio vaccine as a child meant for his family and reminds Americans uncertain about the COVID-19 vaccine:

"We who can receive the COVID-19 vaccine are being asked not just to protect ourselves, but also to protect children."

Bless the children: What Jesus would say about getting a COVID-19 vaccination Protecting and safeguarding the wellbeing of children is at the core of what it is to be human and humane.

A Year in the Life 06: Coming Home

A Year in the Life, filmed throughout the pandemic using COVID-safe protocols, explores how Episcopal schools, ministries, and congregations have adapted to the challenges of the year – from food insecurity to calls for racial justice to worship through restrictions – and more. In this final episode, we visit St. John's Episcopal Church in Essex, Conn.

A search process for a new rector can be difficult in the best of times. Concerns about finding just the right person for the season, determining growth edges for the congregation, and taking honest stock of the community and their spiritual needs – these aren’t easy to address, and especially in a pandemic! Still, St. John’s Episcopal Church – and their new rector from the other side of the country – boldly stepped into the process, following wherever the Holy Spirit led them.

A Year in the Life 05: Episcopal Service Corps

A Year in the Life, filmed throughout the pandemic using COVID-safe protocols, explores how Episcopal schools, ministries, and congregations have adapted to the challenges of the year – from food insecurity to calls for racial justice to worship through restrictions – and more.

Each year, young adults answer the call to serve God and neighbor through the Episcopal Service Corps, or ESC, and its affiliates around the country. When Corps members discerned their calls to serve with the NY Service+Justice Collaborative, they knew they would partner with places like the Church of the Holy Apostles’ soup kitchen and the Trinity Episcopal Church Giving Tree thrift shop. But during a pandemic, how could they continue the work they had been given to do? The answer: creativity, faithfulness, commitment, and an exceptional love for their neighbors.

A number of Episcopal Service Corps programs are still accepting applications for the 2021-2022 Service Year - If you're a young adult aged 21 - 32, apply today to start serving this fall: https://episcopalservicecorps.org/2021-2022-esc-application/.

Next time on A Year in the Life, join us in Essex, Connecticut – a picturesque New England town where St. John’s Episcopal Church found their new rector after a unique search process.

Statement on Indigenous boarding schools by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings – The Episcopal Church 07/12/2021

Statement on Indigenous boarding schools by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings – The Episcopal Church

Statement on Indigenous boarding schools by Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Gay Clark Jennings - President of the House of Deputies

In Genesis, God conferred dignity on all people by creating them in God’s own image–a belief that is shared by all Abrahamic faiths. We are grieved by recent discoveries of mass graves of Indigenous children on the grounds of former boarding schools, where Indigenous children experienced forced removal from their homes, assimilation and abuse. These acts of cultural genocide sought to erase these children’s identities as God’s beloved children.

We condemn these practices and we mourn the intergenerational trauma that cascades from them. We have heard with sorrow stories of how this history has harmed the families of many Indigenous Episcopalians.

While complete records are unavailable, we know that The Episcopal Church was associated with Indigenous schools during the 19th and 20th centuries. We must come to a full understanding of the legacies of these schools.

As chair and vice-chair of Executive Council, and in consultation with our church’s Indigenous leaders, we pledge to make right relationships with our Indigenous siblings an important focus of the work of Executive Council and the 80th General Convention.

To that end, we commit to the work of truth and reconciliation with Indigenous communities in our church. We pledge to spend time with our Indigenous siblings, listening to their stories and history, and seeking their wisdom about how we can together come to terms with this part of our history. We call upon Executive Council to deliver a comprehensive proposal for addressing the legacy of Indigenous schools at the 80th General Convention (www.generalconvention.org/), including earmarking resources for independent research in the archives of The Episcopal Church, options for developing culturally appropriate liturgical materials and plans for educating Episcopalians across the church about this history, among other initiatives.

We also commend Department of the Interior Secretary Deb Haaland on her establishment of the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative (www.doi.gov/pressreleases/secretary-haaland-announces-federal-indian-boarding-school-initiative) and the effort to “shed light on the traumas of the past.” The Episcopal Church is also working to support legislation that will establish a truth and healing commission on Indian boarding school policy, which would complement the Department of the Interior’s new initiative.

As followers of Jesus, we must pursue truth and reconciliation in every corner of our lives, embracing God’s call to recognition of wrongdoing, genuine lamentation, authentic apology, true repentance, amendment of life and the nurture of right relationships. This is the Gospel path to becoming beloved community.
