presidential address

Oh God our Father, we heartily thank, and adore You for granting us another opportunity to gather as a Diocese to worship You, fellowship together and seek the good of your Church and our society.
We sincerely confess that we have not been the Church You called us to be. The Gospel of salvation in Christ, we have grossly adulterated; the way of righteousness and peace, we have abandoned. We have followed the ways and devices of our hearts. The worldly garments we are meant to cast off, we have preferred and adored; we have left your Church Spiritually impoverished but worldly enriched that it has become so difficult to differentiate between The Church and The World. Have mercy on us, for Christ's sake, we pray. More
