In August, Bishop Stewart also had the chance to visit St. Aidan’s Anglican Church in Kansas City, MO, led by Fr. Michael Flowers, Rector, and Fr. D.O. Smart. Bishop Stewart was delighted to consecrate and bless their baptismal font. Bishop Stewart also performed the Confirmations of Korey & Jamie Kincaid with their children present.
On August 10, 2014, Bishop Stewart Ruch visited St. David’s Anglican Church in Durant, Iowa. St. David’s has been led by Father John Spencer since February, 2011. Bishop Stewart consecrated and blessed their altar, lectern, and baptismal font. Bishop Stewart celebrated the Holy Eucharist with Fr. John Spencer & Fr. Michael Brooks. Members of St. David’s, Harvey & Vonnie Dittmer, were overjoyed!

Dear Upper Midwest Diocese,
Fr. Keith Hartsell, the Mission Pastor at Church of the Resurrection, and my Chaplain (communications, events coordination, etc) will be on sabbatical from April 24th through Aug.2nd.
Deacon Karen, Brenda & I will continue to be available throughout the summer. The Diocese has hired Abbey Siebert, to coordinate our Midwest Annual Gathering.
Summer is traditionally a slower ministry season so our communications should not be overly affected; but I did want to inform you of this change for the next few months.
Yours in Christ,
Read this great interview from Preaching Today about how to make the most of those days before Easter.
