A Devotion for the First Week in Advent

Advent 1 Devotional

The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,
    and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
And the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together;
    and a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
    their young shall lie down together;
    and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra,

Prosper the Work of Our Hands

A devotional reflection on Psalm 90:17

May the grace of the Lord our God be upon us;
Prosper the work of our hands; O prosper the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17 (2019 BCP Psalter) 


Here in the concluding lines of Psalm 90 we hear two petitions, one of which is repeated:

May the grace of the Lord our God be upon us.
Prosper the work of our hands; O prosper the work of our hands.

The Wider View This Week
New Wineskins Conference
Bishop Alex Cameron Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 10:03am

On all of those trips there have been remarkable vistas, sudden wildlife sightings, and amusing signs and billboards. All these visual wonders have been taken in by most, but not all, in the car. Frequently as the driver I have missed some of these things because, legitimately, I needed to be focused on the road in front of me. But sometimes we could pull over and take a moment to consider the wider view.

Just a few weeks ago we met together for the Special Electing Convention. I remain humbled and honored by the trust that has been placed in me by the Diocese. I look forward with joy to entering this partnership in the Gospel with you. May God impart his grace to us so that we might be empowered in that mission.

Ad Clerum on Spiritual Renewal from Bishop Martyn Minns Nathan Blake Wednesday, April 20, 2022 - 11:08pm
Spiritual renewal is still an urgent call for each one of us as an individual as well as for the communities that we serve. Jesus reminds us that the Gospel always comes with a promise: “If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” (Luke 11:13)
