The Advent Calendar (week two)

Welcome to week two of our Advent Calendar! This week we’ll continue to examine those delightful gems of the Anglican church as we count down throughout our Advent journey.




SUNDAY 09 Dec.: Bishops

Our beloved brothers and sisters in Christ who get to wear those beautiful purple clergy shirts, not to mention the funkiest hats around. They also wear the responsibility of being the chief pastor to their diocese (or area); they are chosen as guardian or overseer to their charge. The episcopate is an office which dates back to the very early church, and while the specific roles and duties may vary by region and circumstance, these folks remain faithful clergy who shepherd their flock. Bishops are called upon to represent their diocese or area, to reflect prayerfully on God’s call to the wider church, to consider many angles to any situation prior to responding. The Anglican tradition is a rich place that has been made richer through the presence of our bishops.

About Laura Marie Piotrowicz

I'm a high-energy priest, now serving in the Diocese of Niagara, catching glimpses of the kingdom in daily life. I consider church to be a verb, and I'm passionate about prayer, eco-theology, and social justice. I love travel, reading, canoeing, camping, gardening and cooking, playing with my dogs, and drinking good coffee.
