As the church is a living member in the body of Christ, so is our Diocese. Change and movement is inevitable and today we recognize our membership in the clergy is one less, as Rev. Shawn Sanford Beck has by his own will has stepped out of the Diocese and the Anglican Church, to follow his calling to serve in the United Church of Canada. I ask that we, who know him so well, support him in his decision and bless him with our prayers for all his future endeavors.
Yours in faith and ministry,
