Statement issued by the congregation following the Presiding BIshop’s injunction against Jon Bruno
In response to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s order this morning placing St. James the Great under the direct authority and guidance of Bishop John Taylor, Save St James the Great has this statement:
We are very grateful and would like to commend Presiding Bishop Michael Curry for his prayerful deliberation and profound wisdom.
While we hope and pray that this decision will soon open the doors of St. James the Great and restore us to that holy space, we are also mindful that the overriding objective of the Title IV process, and of the Presiding Bishop, is to “promote healing, repentance, forgiveness, restitution, justice, amendment of life and reconciliation …”
We recognize the need for healing through honest reflection, humility and dialogue by all parties, guided by the Holy Spirit. We stand ready to discuss a path forward with Bishop John Taylor, the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Los Angeles, and all of our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Diocese, aimed at restoring us to our house of worship and the Diocese to a peaceful, loving and united community in God’s service.
