From Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves:

Dear friends and family,

My deepest gratitude for the outpouring of love, affection, prayer and blessing as our family moves the painful and shocking loss of our beloved Michael. He was a unique, powerful, intelligent, dynamic, funny, strong and dedicated light in the world. Our hearts are broken, and yet we know and rejoice that as we grieve, we do so in the grace and peace of Jesus Christ, who makes all things new. We are so thankful for our faith and for the community which now holds and bears this tragedy with us. A Celebration of the Risen Christ and Michael's life within it will be held at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 13601 Saratoga Ave. in Saratoga, CA. All are welcome. Finally, this photo was taken are Marinus, Bernardus Lodge, Carmel Valley, CA, on the occasion of our 30th wedding anniversary, December 18, 2012.

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.
