‘The Episcopal Church Welcomes You,’ is not just a slogan, it’s who we seek to be and the witness we seek to make, following the way of Jesus.
For my part, as the Bishop of the Diocese of Oregon, I stand with Bishop Curry and affirm our diocesan family as a house of prayer for all people. Our LGBT brothers and sisters should expect to find a welcome in the churches of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon this Sunday. I remain in prayer for the Anglican Communion and for my brother Bishop Michael Curry as he works to bring God’s message of love to the primates of the Anglican Communion.
The Rt. Rev. Michael Hanley
Episcopal Bishop of Oregon
