As the Eve of Thanksgiving 2015 is upon us, I am giving thanks for all you, in this diocese, and in my life.   Daily I work with the finest people, those who are paid to do so, and those who give of their time without any remuneration.   And daily I am blessed by those relationships.   I am so thankful for you all.

I give thanks for my family, for this beautiful earth on which we live and have been made stewards of, and by which we are sustained.  I pray for all those who do not have persons to love them, who do not have food, or shelter.   May we never forget them, nor our responsibility in changing that reality.  I wish you all love and blessing on this day and every day.
