The Vicar’s Corner

“You may know what you want, but to get what you need, better see that you keep what you have.”

Now this is a tough, complicated one, isn’t it? But, it does give us pause to consider of what our relationship with Jesus consists.

Let’s see: we have this amazing gift of Jesus, who willingly and lovingly presents Himself to us. We have Him…He is ours. But, being human we need more and we want more. So, we search, we hunt and we explore just how we can gain more. And all the while Jesus is there…He is here…He is before us…He is within us.

Message of Support for Marriage Equality in Illinois from Bishop Jeffrey

The scriptures tell us to testify to what we have seen, and in communities and congregations across our diocese, we have seen that extending legal protection and respect to same-sex couples has created stronger, happier households and contributed to the common good. Now in Illinois, the respect afforded by civil unions has been extended to the dignity of true equality. I rejoice that it is now easier for our gay and lesbian sisters and brothers to order their lives together, to care for one another and to raise children in a stable home. Justice has been done. – The Rt. Rev. Jeffrey D. Lee, Episcopal Bishop of Chicago
