Advent Message from the Presiding BishopNovember 21, 2010
[11/22/10] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori delivers her Advent message for 2010.
Psalm 8 celebrates and honors both the Creator and the created order. Echoes of Genesis are easy to notice; perhaps not so obvious is the connection to Job’s whirlwind. The former is realized through the catalog of fauna found in verses 8 and 9 (see Genesis 1:28), while the latter is pronounced...
During Advent, we are preparing our hearts to experience the arrival of the Word of God. We’re told to “keep watch” and to “stay awake.” We are supposed to pay attention to what God is up to in the world. In this passage from Luke, a young adult named John is hanging out in the wilderness,...
Lately the religious diversity of the United States is more apparent. As a result of this increased awareness and familiarity with other religious communities, we get more opportunities to participate in what Swedish theologian Krister Stendahl calls “Holy envy.” Holy envy is simply an...
This Advent, Episcopal Relief & Development offers a variety of ways to mark the season of anticipation and celebrate the birth of Christ, who heals our hurting world.

During the season of Advent, we anticipate peace. Anticipate because we know peace is still just out of reach. That’s the tension of the Christian life. We are in between God’s kingdom and our own. We look around and we don’t see God’s will being done. God’s kingdom hasn’t come. When we look...
The world can be stormy. Chance and fate play a large role in our lives, from school and family to politics. We may feel like a ship, ravaged by wind and rain. People are complicated – and governments more so. What seem to be whims in people we trust and work with often affect our lives. Even...
The beautiful verses of this well-known psalm have afforded comfort and peace to weary and anxious souls for centuries. But sometimes I feel they are too good to be true. The green, lush, soothing place where a peaceful David is led feels like an unattainable dream. It is one faithful sheep’s...
Peace: it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. — anonymous
Jesus gets kind of weird in Luke 10. He goes from sending the 70 out into the wilds of Judea to cast out...
Last summer, I was blessed to take a pilgrimage to a holy little island off the coast of Wales, named Bardsey. I traveled there with a group of fellow doctoral students who ventured to study Celtic spirituality through the model of the monastery that was established on the island in the 5th ...
Today’s passage from the 25th Psalm is all about trust – trusting in God to show us the way to salvation. Aren’t we already doing that? “Show me your ways! Teach me your paths!” No matter how much we say we’re ready, how many times we ask for wisdom, somehow we still don’t have a firm grasp on...
