Convention 2006 – "Trinity"

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. [BCP Collect for Trinity Sunday]

Eastertide, 2006

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Convention 2006 will be a stirring gathering of the whole Diocese focused on the central truth of The Holy Trinity, God's ultimate revelation is His own nature, and His invitation for us to enter into that eternal life.

It will also be our first major assembly with our bishop-elect, Father Bill Love, whom we believe the Lord has called to be the earthly shepherd of this diocese.

One of the highlights will be the Ordination of a cadre of Deacons whom Christ has called to serve in His holy church. All this combines with the Youth Rally, and dozens of Workshops on topics that serve to better equip the local church for ministry.

Our convention brings us before the Lord just days before the General Convention meets in Columbus. This summer will be decisive for the future of Anglicanism, and the Diocesan Convention can be pivotal for our diocesan future.

You have made the Albany Convention one of the major events in the whole Episcopal Church. It has become a watershed of teaching, ministry, fellowship, encouragement, forgiveness and mission. Bishop Dave and Bishop-elect Bill and I look forward to joining in the worship of our one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in the fellowship of His church.

Pray each day for the Lord's blessing on every participant, for every Liturgy, teaching and assembly.

In Christ Jesus,
+ Bishop Dan
