A Letter from the Online Communications Coordinator (Rector’s Letter for 6/14)

Bill’s 13th Anniversary of Ordination to the Diaconate (Rector’s Letter for 6/07)

Dear Redeemer Family:I give praise to the Lord Jesus Christ today, as I celebrate the 13th anniversary of my ordination to the Diaconate (2008). In the Anglican tradition, all those called to the priesthood are first ordained as Deacons and later ordained a second time as Priests (my ordination to the Priesthood was Nov. 2008). I think it is important to note here as an FYI, that some in the Anglican Tradition, like our own Jeanne Higgins, are called to…

Second Future Vision Committee Meeting THIS Saturday

Dear Redeemer Family, In my sermon yesterday, we examined Jesus’ prayer for his disciples in John 17. “Holy Father, keep them in your name…that they may be one, even as we are one.” Jesus prays to the Father, asking him to protect his disciples and give them the same intimate unity that he and the Father share.That is my hope for Redeemer as we move through this season of re-launch and re-visioning, that we would be one: sharing life, faith and…
