Texas Tuesday: EHF

Recently I had the honor of being elected to the Board of the new Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF), which is dedicated to advancing community health within the 57 counties of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and will award approximately $9 million in grants during 2015. I think about medical care each day that I arrive at my church, which is located directly across the street from the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world. I think about our human frailty when the doors of the church are opened onto Main Street in Houston at the end of the liturgy on Good Friday, exposing the contrast between the silence inside and the sirens outside.

So I’m looking forward to this adventure with EHF, both as a member of its board and as an Episcopalian in this region who has promised in the Baptismal Covenant to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving [my] neighbor as [myself].”
