Common Ground

As the Formation and Vocation Ministries Team continues to explore how we can empower ministries that bridge generation gaps, we are frequently blessed with stories of amazing transformation. Episcopal News Service correspondent Sharon Sheridan recently authored a story of an initiative in Alaska that demonstrates the power of finding common ground across generations, institutions, communities, and cultures.

“They say music’s a universal language. To the Rev. Belle Mickelson of the Diocese of Alaska, it’s also a healer and community builder.” – excerpt from ENS Correspondent Sharon Sheridan’s story

Click here to connect with the powerful story of transformation through music in which Mickelson has been a catalyst for invitation, inspiration, and transformation by discerning that amazing place where discernment leads to the good and right use of giftedness, passion, collaboration, and need.

Please join in our prayers of praise and gratitude for Mickelson’s faithfulness in following her call, and Sheridan’s faithfulness in sharing the story so that we all might be moved to find common ground to bridge the gaps that separate us from God and from one another.

If you have a story of transformation through bridging gaps, we want to help you share it. Please submit your story ideas to our team’s social media consultant Wendy@EpiscopalCommunications.com with “Episcopal Generations” in the subject line of your submission.
