Faith is like measles, you can only catch it from those that have it. I want to invite all of our clergy to share the nugget of their story(ies) of trusting God and experiencing transformation with all the people of the Long Island Diocese
I am seeking your contribution of one or more meditations for the 151 Days of The Path/La Senda for 2019/20.
Starting September 15 we hope to have meditations available for the 3 eight week series of The Path that goes September 15, 2019 through May 15, 2020. (If it is possible, we are going to have them translated into Spanish as well. )
As you may recall The Path/La Senda is the story of salvation history. The Path pulls forward the stories and writings that show God’s continual offering of a new life that calls for trust and transformation, and how we respond… or not.
So much of the work that we have ahead of us as Christians, and as a Diocese, calls us to greater levels of trust to be transformed into the church that will serve the changing mission field around us. I want to encourage you to share your stories of faith, of trust and transformation so that we can encourage one another along.
As you may have heard around town:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I ask you to join this gift of faith to our Diocese and complete and send in your meditation by June 30th.
Here are the directions: You will need a Google account. Set one up, if you have trouble Kris Vieira at the Cathedral of the Incarnation is here to help (email@example.com).

I am hoping you will join me in creating this gift to the people we love in Long Island and share the riches that God has so generously showered upon us. This is us writing to our people, building up the love and faith of our life and ministry together.
If you have questions, call me!
