Bishop Greg's Sermons

Mere conformity to God's will and the teachings of Jesus falls short of what He wants: An opening up of ourselves to His most intimate care for us.

    Church of the Advent, Dunnellon, welcomes Pastor Bill Barrett

    I feel truly blessed to serve as the new Priest-in-charge at the Church of the Advent. This is the third congregation that I have served since my ordination in 1996. From that date you can deduce that I am second career clergy (or a very aged thirty something). I completed two calls in Ohio and retired from full time ministry in 2010. I attended Western Michigan University in the hopes of being a high school teacher of speech and drama. I graduated during a year of a record glut in teaching candidates and received no contract offers, although I did meet my wife, Gaye.
