Diocesan Spotlight

A letter from Bishop Waldo as we await Hurricane Florence

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As I write this morning, I am present to the anxiety, fear, and uncertainty that fill our minds and hearts as we await what is to come with Hurricane Florence. The forecast leaves little doubt about the storm's likely impact across the communities of our diocese.

Our Diocesan House staff have implemented an emergency contact system, through which we are in regular contact with the clergy leading our congregations. As the storm and its impact develop, we will share information on the best ways we can help neighbors who suffer loss.

Two powerful images in Scripture highlight Jesus Christ's authority over water and storm. Jesus commands the stormy sea to be calm. The disciples ask, "Who is this...for even the winds and the sea obey him" (Matt 8:26). Also in Matthew, Jesus walks on the sea (Matt 14:26). The message is clear: God's power to save, renew, heal, and restore is infinitely greater than the sea's power to destroy.

As we bear that sure and certain hope within us, God offers us an opportunity to live into our diocesan vision of making, equipping, and sending mature disciples of Christ. Helping one another and our neighbors in and following this storm will shape and equip us in new ways. It will deepen our bonds with each other and our communities.

So, as we wait, we pray. We pray for God's work to be done through us in the midst of this storm. We pray for safety for those in harm's way, for first responders, and for all who will be affected by this storm.

Now may the peace of God, which surpasses all human understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of God's son Jesus Christ. And may the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit be among us, and remain with us always.

Yours in Christ,

The Rt. Rev. Andrew Waldo
Bishop, Diocese of Upper South Carolina
