Habits of Grace
An Invitation for You
from Presiding Bishop Curry
"As we learn to adjust our lives ...,
I invite you to join me each week
to take a moment
to cultivate a habit of grace."
These meditations are short, 3 to 5 minutes in length.
A new one will be posted each Monday through May, but all previous ones can be seen here.
Anti Racism Collect for August
For appreciation of diverse cultural contributions
“O God of all nations and peoples: We live in a nation of immigrants, and one in which the diverse gifts of many peoples have contributed to our energy and strength. Yet it is one in which some immigrants are discriminated against because of the color of their skin, their language, or the country of their origin. Help us, by your grace, to offer hospitality to all strangers, as our Father Abraham did in the desert. Grant us the wisdom and skill to enact just and merciful immigration reforms so that the hospitality and access to this great land may be offered equally to people of all colors and races and nations.” Amen.
New Addition in the Memorial Garden
Where this cross has been for more than 150 years is unknown, but its creation has been traced to France. It bears the date of 1851 and the French words, Corneau Freres of Charleville.
The Corneau foundary, created in 1846, by the Corneau brothers, Alfred and Emile, specialized in ornamental cast iron and produced numerous artistic cemetery crosses with images of St. Peter and St. Paul at the base of the cross. The Corneau Freres foundries became one of the leading manufacturers of art cast iron in the second half of the 19th century.
A gift of a large, ornate, antique cross has been given by Brenda Barnes in memory of her daughter Felicia Lynn Wine Mollohan. It rests above the columbarium in the Christ Church Memorial Garden.
