Episcopal Church: Let’s pray and lift up the Palermo family by giving

Tom Palermo

At the Episcopal Café we are praying now for the Palermo Family in the wake of Tom Palermo’s death.  We hope that  you who follow and support the Episcopal Café  throughout the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion will pray with us for the Palermo family. If you would like to pray and act, please join us and consider making a donation to the Children of Tom Palermo.

 

“O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of Tom Palermo and grant him an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.”

 

-The Rev. E. Weston Mathews on behalf of the Episcopal Café News Team

Prayers are needed for all concerned , including Mr. Palermo, his family and his friends; the cycling community; the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland; and yes, Bp.Heather Cook. Those who are quick to label her might pray that she have strength, even as they pray for comfort and justice for the grieving family.

The strength to be humble enough to resign and spare the church a costly trial,absolutely I can do that.

Thank you for posting the link to the donation site. I will certainly keep this gentleman and his family in my prayers. I hope that the Diocese of Maryland does right by him and his family.

I am appalled by what I have learned of Ms. Cook. If her behavior after the incident is in fact as it has been described, it is simply depraved.

I pray for her as well. I pray that she confesses to her errors. I pray that she is defrocked. I pray that she donates her pension to this gentleman's children.

May God's abiding love and companionship be with us all as we walk with all who grieve and are affected by this tragic event, that we may all truly be one family.

In this tragedy we all grieve, we all die, but we will all rise--let us rise together.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
