Washington’s Bishop Jane Dixon has died

Anglicans across the globe will remember Jane as the second woman bishop in the Episcopal Church and the third in the Anglican Communion. She claimed that distinction not for herself, but for its power to proclaim the gospel. “I am a symbol of the inclusiveness of God,” she said at a press conference on the morning of her consecration.

Merry Christmas

At this feast of the nativity

let each person wreathe the door of his heart

so that the Holy Spirit may delight in that door,

enter in and take up residence there;

then by the spirit we will be made holy.
