A Call to Serve

Many things have changed because of this pandemic. We have learned to show our love for those we do not know by wearing masks and adhering to physical distancing rules. We have learned to live with the reality that we are all potentially propagators and victims of a microscopic virus that is capable of turning a world of 7.6 billion people upside down when loosed. In light of all of the people lost, and with the mass immunization in the foreseeable future, how will we use the newly rediscovered freedom that we took for granted most of our lives? Whom do we feel called to meet, and how do we feel called to serve in order to discover the gifts God may have in store?

Given the blessing of over seven hundred thousand Spanish-speakers in our state, the Spanish-Language ministries in the Diocese of East Carolina are putting a call out to those who may feel moved to serve on the Spanish-Language Commission. To serve, one does not have to know Spanish. To serve, one simply has to have a passion to proclaim God’s love and a curiosity to see what God is doing amongst our Spanish-speaking neighbors to enrich our congregations.

If, after prayer and discernment, you feel God is calling to serve on the Spanish-Language Ministry Commission, please contact The Rev. Frederick Clarkson by calling (713) 392-7725 or emailing him at Fclarkson@diocese-eastcarolina.org.
Middle and High School young people are invited to be part of this community during Lent. Gatherings will take place on Sundays in Lent from 11:15 - noon via Zoom. Prayer, scripture, and small groups will be lead by the East Carolina Youth Council.

From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference
“From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference” is a campaign inviting Episcopalians and our neighbors to engage in one-to-one listening and sharing across the many differences that separate us. The conversations center on four questions: What do you love? What have you lost? Where does it hurt? What do you dream?

Anyone can join in these life-changing conversations, by engaging one on one, exploring the questions in small groups, and talking with people of different ages and backgrounds. In so doing, we begin to discover how our differences make us stronger as the human family of God.

Here you'll find explanations for each of the questions, suggestions on going deeper, and additional resources to keep your conversations going.
