It is a holy and weighty thing to serve the Church as a bishop, and I know that I can’t do it without God’s help. St. Paul talks about how we have this treasure in jars of clay. I feel the reality of that every time I approach the altar or stand in the pulpit. But I guess that’s the point. The ability to do ministry in the name of Jesus isn’t something that I, or anyone else, possesses on our own. That’s a power that comes only from God. Isn’t it wonderful that in his graciousness, he delights to use everyday, ordinary people like us in his holy work? How beautiful is that?
