St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is grateful for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s pastoral letter in response to Bishop William Love’s directive forbidding the implementation in the Diocese of Albany of General Convention’s Resolution B012. Resolution B012 permits rectors to marry same sex couples beginning the first Sunday of Advent, December, 2, 2018.
Presiding Bishop Curry writes: “We are committed to the principle of full and equal access to, and inclusion in, the sacraments for all of the baptized children of God, including our LGBTQ siblings. For as St. Paul reminds us in Galatians 3, “in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”
This is the dream and goal of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Albany. We will continue to work, using the proper channels provided by our polity, toward making these words a reality here. Please click here for more, including an update from the Presiding Bishop.
