  • Do Clergy Need Time to Be Quiet?

    by the Rev. Christine Leigh-Taylor, Retired, The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California No one asked us explicitly. But the large attendance at a February 25th Clergy Lenten Quiet Day at Mercy Center Auburn, with Bishop Barry Beisner and Bishop Brian Thom, of the Episcopal Diocese of Idaho, attested that a time of collective solitude resonated well with diocesan clergy in the Sacramento Valley area.

  • Responding to Violence and Destruction

    with Mercy and Justice by the Rev. Canon Britt E. Olson, Canon to the Ordinary O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen?

  • Justice

    by the Rev. Bob Olsen What is Justice? Between working on the Bishop’s Conference planning group with its theme of Mercy and Justice and preparing a sermon for the Fourth Sunday of Lent, where the Gospel was Luke’s telling of the parable of the Prodigal Son (15:1-3, 11b-32), it dawned on me that God’s sense of justice might be a bit different than that of most of us.
