Tidings of Joy

This is the text of the quarter-page ad that ran today in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, first section A, page 9A.

Newspaper ads are the most efficient way to reach isolated Episcopalians in our far-flung diocese. It is also the most expensive way. Anyone wanting to support future ads for the reorganized diocese can make contributions here .

The reorganized diocese is growing daily as more Episcopalians begin to find each other. Please pray for us.



The Episcopal Church STILL Welcomes You!

The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth is still a part of the Episcopal Church, the Anglican presence in the United States of America, despite the recent decision of some to affiliate with the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone.

Episcopalians continue to carry out the mission of the Church – to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. We invite you to worship with Episcopalians at these locations.

I was very proud to see this in the paper today. It was a very wise thing to do. Many people, Episcopalians and otherwise have asked where they can attend an Episcopal Church. Now the answers are available to those who have not followed the "politics" of the past few years. Great Job Steering Committee!
