A message to the diocese from Bishop Marc: Protect the Dreamers

With you, I received the news that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will be terminated. I join with the Dreamers (DACA recipients) and all of the people of the diocese in your dread and hope, in your disappointment and faith, in your hurt and healing, and in your righteous anger at the flagrant disregard for God’s call to treat others as we want to be treated. I speak especially in solidarity with Dreamers, their parents, and all who were born in other lands and have made this community their home. But more generally, I speak to all. 

A tour of DioCal Part I: Spotlight on Our Savior, Mill Valley

The DioCal communications team tour is off to a great start! Every Wednesday, schedules permitting, DioCal Communications Director Stephanie Martin Taylor and Associate Dani Scoville travel to a different church to brainstorm with folks about communications strategies and to learn more about all the wonderful things happening in each congregation. They’re finding that each church, no matter how large or small, has exciting things going on and good news to share!

From Bishop Marc to diocese: Thank you for your presence — in numbers and in spirit

Dear Friends in Christ,

This past weekend, Sheila and I had what must have been a nearly unique view of the Bay Area’s responses to the planned rallies of far-right groups here. We took part in the Interfaith Peace Shabbat at Temple Emanu-El of San Francisco Friday evening, the service Saturday at Grace Cathedral that highlighted the visions of peace and justice of three elders of those historic movements, the Civic Center gathering Saturday afternoon, and the peace march and rally in Berkeley on Sunday.
