A pastoral letter from Bishop Steven Miller in remembrance of Orlando
Dear Friends in Christ,
We woke Sunday morning to the news of yet another mass shooting. While listening to the news as I drove to my visitation in Portage, I heard the announcement that the number of those killed had risen to 50, making it the largest mass shooting in recorded American history.
The Diocese of Milwaukee offers two resources to its parishes for use in their weekly services. In the spirit of building community, all parishes are encouraged to use both resources beginning in Advent 2014 so that all voices are lifted together as we offer these prayers, week by week.

A pastoral letter from Bishop Miller on the 2016 Elections
Dear friends in Christ,
On Monday of this week, I found myself drawn to the words of the hymn, “All my Hope on God is Founded”, a hymn whose words have comforted me time and time again during the course of my life. I write to you today, the day after the 2016 election, to remind you in the words of this hymn that God will guide us through this time of change, as he has through so many changes before. My prayer, as expressed in our Book of Common Prayer, is that we “who are wearied by the changes and chances of this life will rest in God’s eternal changelessness”.
