Let us pray

Jun 01, 2014

Dear friends in Christ, 


Thanks be to God for our time together at Synod Assembly, a vital occasion in the life and mission we share as a synod. Our assembly affirmed both particular key initiatives for implementing our strategic plan, as well as the team that has been assembled to carry out that work of implementation. Our assembly also revealed that the great gift of diversity in our synod comes with differences of opinion and strong feelings about those differences.


With all of this in mind as we embark on new initiatives for mission, I urge each and every one of you to join in common prayer during the coming weekend of Pentecost by using or creatively adapting the resources for worship and prayer available at www.mnys.org/growinginfaith.


Recalling Jesus' own prayer for his disciples in the Gospel for Easter 7--"Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one" (John 17:11b)--I, too, pray that the Holy Spirit will bring us more deeply together in shared mission for such a time as this.


Sincerely in Christ,


Bishop Robert Alan Rimbo
