Bishop Stacy Sauls’ presentation to House of Bishops

“The presentation represents thoughts and ideas that have been growing for a long time and in conversation with many other people throughout the church, but they are not intended as being presented as anything other than my own.” Addressing the concerns of dioceses and citing examples, he illustrated the need for reform through charts and graphs.

Red door = Safe haven

A service in memory of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers student who took his own life, was held last night at St. John the Evangelist Church in New Brunswick, NJ. It was part of a campaign in the Diocese of New Jersey called “Red Door=Safe Haven.”

The Reward

“Just do my will; it is enough.” And to this I would always reply in a very down-to-earth way: “It’s easy for you to say! I just can’t do it. It’s not enough for me. I need a reward. If it’s not people’s good thoughts, if it’s not the applause, if it’s not my image, then I must have something.
