The following statement from Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is in tribute to Rachel Held Evans:

Today is a sad day for our Church and for everyone who found the path home to our loving, liberating, life-giving God because of Rachel Held Evans. She was a fearless seeker of truth and servant of Jesus, and her witness will inspire and heal generations to come. #BecauseofRHE

Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant, Rachel. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of your mercy … and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen. #BecauseofRHE

El siguiente comunicado del Obispo Presidente de La Iglesia Episcopal Michael Curry es un tributo a Rachel Held Evans:

Hoy es un penoso día para nuestra Iglesia y para todos aquellos quienes gracias a Rachel Held Evans encontraron le camino a casa a nuestro Dios amoroso, liberador y vivificante. Ella fue una intrépida buscadora de la verdad y servidora de Jesús, y su testimonio inspirará y sanará a las generaciones venideras. #BecauseofRHE

En tus manos, oh misericordioso Salvador, encomendamos a tu sierva, Raquel. Reconoce, te rogamos humildemente, a una oveja de tu propio redil, a un cordero de tu propio rebaño, a un pecador que tú has redimido. Recíbele en los brazos de tu misericordia … y en la gloriosa compañía de los santos en luz. Amén. #BecauseofRHE
