Some of you have contacted the office regarding emails you thought were from me. The email subject has “bless you” in it. If this email is from firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com please delete it as both are spam. (I offer my blessings regardless.)
On a separate note, I wanted to share this article in the New York Times on the popularity of Philadelphia and its region. “The population of the city is growing for the first time in decades, buoyed by both immigrants and millennials …”
This presents opportunity for all of us. And, for some, a challenge to figure out how you speak and relate to new audiences. How to get out and evangelize to your new neighbors. The Evangelism Committee, led by Canon Wamsley, is helping churches reimagine and engage our roles in proclaiming the Gospel. Please be in touch with him, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested or looking for assistance.
And, bless you, for real, every day.
The Rt. Rev. Daniel G. P. Gutiérrez
XVI Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania
