The mission of this parish has been summed up in the words of Jesus when he said, “We are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength; and our neighbor as ourselves.”
SPECIAL CONVENTION TO ELECT THE TENTH BISHOP OF MAINE
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2019
CROSS CENTER, BANGOR
THE REV. THOMAS JAMES BROWN
as the 10th Bishop (elect) of MAINE
God of Grace, we give you thanks for all the blessings of our common life and ministries as the Episcopal Diocese of Maine. We thank you for the faithful work of the Discernment Committee and for all who have offered themselves to your service in this season of change. May the Holy Spirit continue to bless the Transition Committee, and to infuse this process with the gifts of faith, hope and love. We give thanks and pray for Anne, Janet, Ken, and Rachel, and for thier continued ministries and willingness to participate in this calling process. And we pray for Thomas as he begins his transition to Maine and this ministry of service together. May they be filled with vision, courage, patience and hope . In Christ’s name we pray, Amen.
Along the highways of our lives there dwell secret places of refuge. It is for us to find them, explore them, and to discover the untold wonder awaiting us.
It is in the present day, among us and around us; the mystery of awe and the glory of love. When we see someone touched by it, we, too, are illumined.
