God of justice and mercy, we remember before you this day your servants Peter Williams Cassey
and Anna Besent Cassey, who, in the face of slavery and discrimination, sought to give the
blessings of the priceless gift of education and a spiritual haven for those pushed to the margins.
May we strive in our own lives to be fearless in the face of injustice and work for blessings that
will touch those whom the world does not count of value, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who
with you and the Holy Spirit lives forever and ever. Amen.

Good morning everyone. My name is Greg Troxell, I serve at All Saints' Episcopal Church in Carmel-By-The-Sea

I welcome your suggestions and participation. I wish I was down in San Diego this week with #episcom. This month the priorities are to connect and engage more members and leadership throughout the province in various social networks, increase sharing of existing events, and begin redesigning the provincial website: www.provinceviii.org
