Bishop Julian Dobbs writes to the diocese about:
"The Wisdom of God's Word in our Modern World" 

To Pray Or Not To Pray... that is the question!
Bishop Dave Bena writes to the diocese.

On the night of April 14-15 2014, 276 female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in the town of Chibok in Borno State, Nigeria. Responsibility for the kidnappings was claimed by Boko Haram, an Islamic extremist and terrorist organization based in northeastern Nigeria. Earlier this month, 21 of the kidnapped school girl were released. Boko Haram is now affiliated with ISIS and is responsible for thousands of brutal execution and torture in the name of the god of the Qu'ran. More than 2 million people are internally displaced in Nigeria as a result of this violence. Watch this CNN video for a time line account of the kidnapping of the Chibok girls and pray for Nigeria. 

"When I am asked why I think maintaining the discipline of approved liturgies without regular alteration is good theology, worship, and teaching, I give a definition and then I give two reasons."  Canon Henry Jansma

The Bishop asked Diocesan Canon Theologian, Henry Jansma, to answer this question during the clergy and spouse retreat
