Join the Good Book Club

What is the Good Book Club?
The Good Book Club is an invitation to all Episcopalians to join in reading Saint Paul’s Letter to the Romans during Epiphany 2019. Episcopalians will start reading Romans on January 7 and read a section every day (except Sundays) through the Epiphany season. In surveys taken before and after the first Good Book Club project in 2018 (reading the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts), participants reported growth in their understanding of scripture and a deepening of their prayer life. Perhaps most significantly, the percentage of people who reported reading the Bible on a daily basis increased to 73 percent at the end of the first Good Book Club reading, from 45 percent when it began.

Letter to the Episcopal Church Regarding Statute of Limitations Suspension for Clergy Sexual Misconduct

On December 12, 2018, Presiding Bishop Curry and President of the House of Deputies Jennings sent out a letter to the Episcopal Church regarding a suspension of the statute of limitations for clergy sexual misconduct.

As a result of Resolution D034, from January 1, 2019, until December 31, 2021, those who wish to bring a case of sexual misconduct against a member of the clergy will be able to do so, regardless of how long ago the alleged misconduct occurred. Allegations of misconduct can be made to the intake officer in the diocese where the alleged misconduct occurred, or, if the allegation is against a bishop, to the Office of Pastoral Development

For more information, please read the letter from Presiding Bishop Curry and President Jennings.

The contact information for the Intake Officers for the Diocese of Milwaukee can be found here.
