When do you find yourself afraid? Fear can be paralyzing. In the face of our adversities we can feel alone. In the middle of the troubles of life we can experience isolation and feel like there is no one with us. It is easy to be distressed by our adversities and to be tempted to fall into despair or discouragement. God speaks tenderly to us, saying, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10, ESV). May we experience the courage of God with us. May we experience the strength and help of our God upholding us by His righteous hand.
In Christ alone,

Both distribute regular updates and newsletters. You will find information about the Anglican Church in North America here - information about the Diocese of the MidAtlantic here .
 
Ministry Update   Sojourners is the name given to the ministry we began in 2016 as we intentionally opened our doors to Michel. Like so many, Michel had fled the violence of his own home and found a new home with us. Due to the exciting and likely possibility that Michel will soon be reunited with his family of four, we have not yet expanded this ministry. Our goal is to first provide for this dear family and then prayerfully consider expanding this ministry to others. For more information, please contact the coordinator for this ministry, Jack Rusenko at jack@rusenko.com .
