It's always a joy when we get to gather with those from throughout the synod and country for worship. It's even more of a joy when we get to gather to officially welcome our new bishop, Bishop Anne Edison-Albright and her family to our synod.
Initially, this past Saturday was scheduled to be the day of a Service of Installation for Bishop Anne, however due to the pandemic, the installation planning team, Synod Council, and Presiding Bishop's office thought it best to postpone an installation until it is safer for travel and for people to be in the same room with one another. Instead, we were able to gather virtually for a service of welcome!
This service was lovely, meaningful, and a blessing to be part of! I hope you'll take the time to check it out to get a glimpse of how the Holy Spirit has been at work in the East Central Synod and beyond.
Peace be the journey,
