A Note from the Bishop of the Diocese of the Upper Midwest
Dear Family of God,
As our Bishop indicates, this is a tragic situation that emerged in one of our far west suburban Greenhouse congregations in 2019. Please pray for all of those victimized or hurt, our Bishop and other pastors involved, and please cooperate with the Bishop’s request, if it pertains to you.
On behalf of all of us in pastoral leadership at Greenhouse, as well as our board, we are invested in this diocesan process, and we are committed to instituting whatever new policies and pastoral approaches, accountabilities and best practices are recommended. We want anyone who has experienced abuse to know that it is safe to come forward, that their stories will be heard, and that we will walk towards healing with them.
