Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Thank You from Biloxi

King of Peace sent $1,000 to the Church of the Redeemer in Biloxi, Mississippi to assist in needed for that church devasted by Hurricane Katrina (You can see a video of the Church of the Redeemer, Biloxi in the aftermath of Katrina). The following note from their Rector, Harold Roberts was sent to the 18 churches who have teamed up to assist them in their rebuilding both their church and community:

Worship on the grounds of Redeemer in Biloxi after the HurricaneI want to thank you for your patience and wonderful support. Although Christmas on the Coast will be very different for most of us, we have been incredibly blessed by the generosity of so many of you. I am behind in my Thank You notes, but I do want to assure you that your support has been wonderful. One of the real joys that I have been experiencing this past week has been to be Santa Claus with somebody else’s money. These monetary gifts have done amazing things to lift the spirits of struggling families.

I can’t begin to tell you of the countless lives that have been changed by people coming to the Coast for some real “hands on” ministry. I also need to tell you that one of the prime keys to our future on the Coast is Hope; the Hope that we feel in knowing that so many “out there” care about us, pray for us, and sent us such help.

Again, thank you all.

Have a wonderful Christmas!
