You can read Bishop Rob's Advent Message at his blog, Tending the Vine

Excerpt about being "witness" to recent actions in Ferguson, Missouri, and Staten Island, NY:  "May God loosen our tongues, and open the ears of those who can hear the cry of the poor and the disenfranchised in our land.  May we, like John the Baptizer, prepare the way of God’s realm by crying out in this wilderness.  Though we may do that from the margins of our society, (the church is now, blessedly, more and more on those margins), may our testimony be as enduring and shimmering as those unheard of  women in Jesus’ day: Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna, each of whom rejoiced at the arrival of the Holy One in their day."
