A Note from the Editor

By , on September 1, 2022

Maybe it’s just me, but as I grow older, the summer goes by faster and faster. I’m told that time speeds up as I grow older. I guess that’s something to look forward to.

In any case, it feels like just yesterday that I was sitting at my computer putting together the last edition of the Mustard Seed for the 2021-2022 publishing year. Yet, here I am, at the beginning of August, preparing September’s issue once again (remember, the Mustard Seed is prepared a month in advance, due to the fact that it has to be sent off to be printed, put with the Anglican Journal, and mailed to your door step (or PO Box!)

This issue of the Mustard Seed is bigger than the four pages it normally is. Things seemingly have come to a new normal, as we seek to live in a world that still has COVID-19 as a very real part of it. However, in spite of that, the Diocese was still able to operate the Anglican Memorial Camp (photos on page 4 and 5), and the Bishop (and others) were able to attend the Lambeth Conference

It has been a busy summer in these parts, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about that. The Mustard Seed is here to tell the stories of the churches and other ministries of the diocese.

As we begin another publishing year, I think it might be a good time for us to pause and reflect about things that we’re already planning in our parish for the fall season. Perhaps you could take a moment to submit something about what happened in your church this summer (or will happen in the fall.) One of the most common comments that I get is that people who read the Mustard Seed read it because it allows them to be able to see what’s going on in other churches. It reminds them that they are not alone – that there are other Anglicans in this area.

I want to remind you that the Mustard Seed is a way for us to keep connected as a diocesan family. I realize that sometimes, due to publishing deadlines or needs, the material may seem a little ‘out of date’ or may not appear at all (and for that, I truly apologize), but these are our stories, and are important (no matter how ‘out of date’ they seem!)

I look forward to another year of hearing the stories of the many, many things happening in this diocese. May God continue to bless each one of us in our beloved Diocese of Brandon.
