Now is the time to pray #GC77

It is not hard to want to turn away from the actions now underway at the 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church.  For so many of us, we have walked on, shaking the dust, and starting again. Why care?  Why care?

Why care?  Because there are hundreds of thousands of Christian believers in the Episcopal Church - maybe a million, maybe more.  Thousands more on the road, looking for Jesus.  They are our brothers and sisters and we share a common faith, a common story.  God the Father loves them, Jesus died for them, the Holy Spirit is alive, He is alive and at work, even when we cannot see, especially when we cannot see.

Now is the time to pray.  So for the next few days as General Convention continues in Indianapolis, let's pray for our friends, for our brothers and sisters, for those who are estranged from us and we from them.  May the Holy Spirit come and do a work in all our hearts, that we may see Jesus - step by step by step.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. (Hebrews 12:1)
