Sermon preached on Trinity Sunday, June 4, 2023 at Church of the Redeemer, Addison, New York, in the Diocese of Rochester, my first Sunday as priest-in-residence.
I am pleased to be with you today and to begin our ministry together, our relationship together. I hope over the next few months to get to know each one of you, and for each one of you to get to know me.
It is our nature, like God, to need, to need not to be alone. And not just with whom already know and love. We are called to co-create with God a world where no thing and no one is alone.
Now, it is perfectly reasonable for someone in this world of ours, in this county and village even, to respond, “Why not? Why shouldn’t I be afraid?”
