Bishops of the Episcopal Church gathered for a week in the Diocese of Alaska earlier this month.
Bishop Lane’s video offers a glimpse into their visit, including a blessing of the landscape of a former gold mine, a visit to St. Jude’s, North Pole, and singing in a huge pot of moose head soup where bishops and spouses were welcomed by the local community.
At the close of the meeting, Bishops offered a word to the Church. They wrote, in part, “God calls us to listen to each other with increased attention. It is only with unstopped ears and open eyes that our hearts and lives will be changed. It is through the reconciling love of God in Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit that we and the earth itself will be healed.” Read it all here.
