Texas Supreme Court Rules in Favor of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth

Today we rejoice that the Supreme Court of Texas has issued a unanimous decision in our favor concerning the suit first brought against the Diocese and Corporation more than 11 years ago. After considering our Petition for Review of the 2018 opinion issued by the Second Court of Appeals, the high Court has granted all the relief requested. Page two of the opinion says in part, Applying neutral principles to

Sixth Sunday of Easter 2020

The Truths of Christianity can be arrived at by reason alone, but they are never unreasonable! In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So very good to be here with you on this 6th Sunday of Easter, where has the time gone, and will we ever forget Eastertide 2020? Just imagine being at the Areopagus in Athens in the 1st Century and having the

Fifth Sunday of Easter

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except by me.” “Thomas said to Jesus, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.

Fourth Sunday of Easter

“I am the door; If anyone enters by me he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

May 1: Updated Pastoral Directive from Bishop Reed

To the people of the Diocese of Fort Worth, Greetings in the name of the Risen Lord and Savior of the world. Our hope is in Jesus Christ, and now more than ever, we need to affirm that truth. Despite living in a time of pandemic and economic upheaval, we are blessed. One hundred years ago, during the Spanish flu, churches were shut down for months on end. With the

Third Sunday of Easter

He had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread. Laurie and I travel so much that our theme song is “On the Road Again,” by Willie Nelson. Every time we load up and head out of town, one of us starts singing it. The story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus made me think of our theme song. It begins with the words, “That

Second Sunday of Easter

It is so good to be here with you all, in these most bizarre times. As Orthodox Christians we have real and profound reason to be hopeful, even in the face of horrific tragedy. We have lost many loved ones, and may lose a good many more. Our faith is not some “pie in the sky when you die by and by”, no it is far more interesting than that.

Sunday of the Resurrection

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! How wonderful it is to cry out Alleluia once again. Today, like that early morning that we heard about in the Gospel is the first day of the week. This is the day we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. Every Sunday of the year is a celebration of his resurrection, but this one is our annual feast recalling that

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Sermon on the Great Vigil of Easter Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! Tonight we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from death and grave to eternal life. But, for many people, Easter means so much more. As I was watching television earlier today, I saw an ad for a Golden Easter Bunny made of chocolate. The tag line was something about the Magic
