7 Preparations for Diocesan Convention (June 6-8 )
***** Pray for those attending the Diocesan Convention to recover their first love and passion for Jesus.

***** Christ Church Coxsackie is hosting an evening of revival at the church, 70 Mansion St., Coxsackie, NY, 12051, 7pm, Friday, 5/09. Usually there is worship, encouraging message and healing prayer, seeking God as we are led by the Lord. The message will be given by Jacob Evans, a seminarian from Nashoda House and from All Saints, Round Lake. All are welcome. Bring an unsaved friend. God is EXCELLENT, for all eternity!
***** Diocesan Convention Guest Speaker: The Rt. Rev. Grant Le Marquand, Area Bishop for the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti)
One of the plenary speakers at this year's Diocesan Convention will be The Rt. Rev. Grant Le Marquand. Bishop Le Marquand is Area Bishop for the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti) in the Diocese of Egypt. Bishop LeMarquand's area is obviously quite different from last week's featured speaker (Bishop Darren McCartney, Suffragan Bishop of the Arctic)! Before becoming a bishop, Bishop Le Marquand was Full Professor of Biblical Studies and Mission at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. His interest is in the New Testament, the Synoptic Gospels, the Bible and Mission, African Christianity, Biblical exegesis, Greek, and liturgy. Very committed to mission, evangelism, and ecumenical relations, Bishop Le Marquand has served in various countries, including Canada, the US, and Kenya, where he taught at St Paul's Seminary where several African Anglican bishops and archbishops were his students. Bishop LeMarquand is currently working in his area to minister to the thousands of refugees pouring into the Horn of Africa from South Sudan, due to the terrible fighting there. In order to hear Bishop Le Marquand speak, however, you need to be at Convention! To register, click http://www.albanyepiscopaldiocese.org/forms/Convention/2014/2014ConventionRegistrationForm.php .
