In Gratitude

by | Apr 9, 2020

Diocesan staff during a morning check-in and following Jesus’ teaching to love one another.

Like you, those of us on diocesan staff have spent the past several weeks trying to figure out “the new normal” and, boy, it feels like that changes every day. Like you, we’ve pivoted from in-person meetings to All Things Zoom–with plenty of texting, phone calling and emailing to fill in the gaps. We’ve figured things out by trial and error; laughing, crying, worrying, and finding joy in precious moments of connection. We’ve done a lot of that together each weekday morning during our staff check-ins. During this Holy Week, like you, we’ve followed Jesus’ walk to Jerusalem in our daily Bible study. Each Scripture passage grounds us, reminding us why we’re here, why we serve the good people of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, and why we love God.
