Please pray for judge, legal team
at June 2 hearing

 

Your prayers are asked for a legal hearing scheduled for Wednesday, June 2, at 9 a.m., before Judge Ralph Walton in Hood County. The case involves a bequest made by a parishioner to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Fort Worth.  In April of last year, the newly formed diocese of TEC loyalists claimed that future proceeds from the bequest should now come to them since St. Andrew’s is no longer a part of TEC.

At the hearing Judge Walton will have to rule on several conflicting motions, which make this very simple matter rather complex. There is the potential for much confusion. Please pray for clarity of understanding during the hearing and for God's blessing of wisdom for Judge Walton.  We are asking the Court to respect the original intentions of the donor that all proceeds go to St. Andrew’s Church.
