O God, make the door of this parish wide enough to receive all those who need your fellowship and ours, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife. Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, nor to straying feet, but rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter's power. God, make the door of this parish the gateway to your eternal kingdom. Amen. 
(adapted from a prayer by Thomas Ken, 1637 – 1711)

Message From Bishop Jim

On Wednesday, May 27th, Assisting Bishop Jim Waggoner wrote a brief communiqué to the Clergy of the Diocese of Nevada to relay a decision not to reopen church buildings at this time. This is the text of Bishop Jim's message: 

Dear Friends in Christ,

As I have been in communication with other Bishops in Province VIII, with our Chancellor, clerics, and diocesan staff members, I have made the decision to keep our church campuses closed. Coronavirus numbers continue to climb in Nevada, and protocols from the CDC and other health agencies prescribe safety procedures for reopening churches that we are not yet able to meet. Liability issues are also considered in this decision, along with the health and welfare of our parishioners. The decision about how and when to reopen our parish buildings will be revisited in early July. Throughout June, no gatherings may be held on church property in the Diocese of Nevada. Next week I will be sending out a more detailed letter about our plans for moving forward together, and how we might continue to be church even when we are not able to meet in our buildings. Please be assured that detailed information about reopening your campuses will be given to you when the time is appropriate - you do not need to create your own plan. In the meantime, may you and your parish continue to grow in depth of love, patience and compassion through this time of sacrifice.

As noted in the text above, Bishop Jim is currently in process of composing a longer and more formal message for not only the clergy but for all in our diocese. The diocesan office expects this letter to the Church in Nevada to be completed early next week, and the office will forward it to all once we receive it, using the same Constant Contact e-mail program that we use for these E-Announcements
