We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
Are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

In accordance with Diocesan Canon 25, The Right Rev’d Sue Moxley is inviting

is on file with the Bishops' Office and may be reviewed by any prospective applicant.
ON THE RESURRECTION.
The resurrection of Christ was not a return to mortal body. It was not resuscitation, as with Lazarus; nor was it the escape of immortal soul. It was the transformation of body, the reconciliation of flesh and spirit. The Risen Lord was not a ghost: "A spirit hath not flesh and bones as ye see me have." (Luke 24.39) The disciples were incredulous. Clearly, in spite of what Jesus had said, they expected no such thing. They hoped to embalm his body, and preserve it as a sacred relic. Their immediate reaction to the resurrection was fear and dismay. They knew the limits of the possible. "Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe," said Thomas. (John 20.25) But they saw, and they believed, and their lives became a witness to the resurrection.

Marriage Sermon - GRACE & DAGLEY Posted Sept 9
Do not put asunder your marriage individually with God, and God will teach you all you need to know about marriage with one another. And you will shine in your lives together as an ever and ever brighter image to the world, an icon, a living picture, of the mystical marriage of Christ and His Church. (click for full text)

Look down from heaven, behold, and visit this vine,
and the stock that thy right hand hath planted,
and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself...
Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts;
show the light of thy countenance upon us,
and we shall be whole.
Psalm 80:15, 19
