Advent 2023

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

ALMIGHTY God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen.

Saint Nicholas

You better watch out,
You better not cry,
Better not deny that one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, is of One Substance with the Father,
I'm telling you why:
Saint Nicholas is comin' to town.

The Society of the Holy Cross

With indescribable gratitude to the faithful of Saint Barnabas Cathedral, Atlanta, I am overjoyed to display this once-in-a-lifetime gift, a new Society of the Holy Cross (SSC) episcopal pectoral Cross, one of only a handful in the world. This exquisite Cross was given today in commemoration of my enthronement in 2021 as Diocesan and Presiding Bishop. Please pray for me as I wear it in service to all of you. God forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Bishop Larry Lee Shaver - RIP

Of your Christian charity, pray for the blessed repose of the soul of the Right Reverend
Larry L. Shaver, Bishop in the Church of God.
O God, who hast made thy servant Larry to flourish among the Ministers of Apostolic Succession in the honourable office of a Bishop: grant, we beseech thee, that he may also be joined with thine Apostles in a perpetual fellowship. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
