Read More

Gracious God, we thank you and praise you for guiding the people of ECCT in the discernment of our next bishop diocesan culminating in the election of Jeffrey Mello as the XVI Bishop Diocesan. We pray for Bishop-elect Jeff and his family, as they journey in transition to Bishop-Elect Jeff’s new call. We pray also for the people of St Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brookline as they journey in transition, saying goodbye to Bishop-elect Jeff and as they enter their own discernment process. We thank you for everyone who offered themselves to our discernment, especially for nominees Glenna, Kate, Tanya, and Whitney. May you continue to grace them with their gifts as they continue to follow your call. We pray for Bishop Laura, for her continued grace and steadfastness, as she transitions to partner with Bishop-elect Jeff in leading ECCT. We pray in gratitude for our Bishop Ian, his leadership, guidance, and service, and for his spouse Kristin, asking blessings for their next journey. All this we pray through Jesus Christ our Savior, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God now and forever. Amen.
