Almighty God, who created us in your own image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against evil and to make no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice in our communities and among the nations, to the glory of your holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

—Book of Common Prayer

Meet our new bishop

The Very Rev. Dr. Doug Scharf will return to the diocese where he was born and raised and is well known. He was elected at a special convention April 2 as our bishop coadjuter and will be ordained as bishop September 24 in Sarasota. He will become the sixth bishop of the diocese when Bishop Dabney Smith retires, within three years.

Four final candidates introduced themselves at "meet & greets" around the diocese. All the q&a sessions can be seen here.

Fr. Scharf was born and raised in Ft. Myers, where his father was an Episcopal priest. He served several parishes in the Diocese of Southwest Florida before moving to Palm Beach County to become rector of Good Shepherd in Tequesta.

"There are few moments when a priest is speechless, but this is one of them. I have been so humbled and honored to have been a part of this journey with you all and to be elected, I am truly overwhelmed. I feel the presence of God’s grace in this moment,” Fr. Doug said when he received the news of his election via a phone call from Bishop Smith. The assembly reacted with a joyful applause.

Reflect and Connect

This group meets at 9:30 a.m. (new time) Wednesdays in the library to watch and discuss the series, Chosen. We're just now starting the series, so newcomers won't feel lost. All are welcome to sit in and participate fully or to simply audit.

Sacred Ground Series

This is a series of videos, readings and small-group discussions about race. This is highly recommended if you have questions about "critical race theory," a topic needlessly politicized. To watch an introduction, click here.

Interested in pursuing Sacred Ground further? As in participating in a small-group study? Contact Nora Broszeit or Tom Connolly.

Supporters of Tumaini Fund

Dr. Susan Wilson, an English family physician, is full of energy and zealfor the Lord. She founded Tumaini (the word means "hope") Fund to put her faith to work in the AIDS-ravaged Kagera region of Northwest Tanzania. There she established an orphanage for thousands of children who lost their moms and dads to AIDS. In addition to monitary contributions, the ladies of our church, the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) have sewn numerous dresses, as seen here with Dr. Wilson.

Parishioners Mike Moore and Roger Conant are directors for the fund in the United States.
