The Rev’d Nicholas Porter
Christ Church, New Haven, Conn.
The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
August 11, 2019

In this message of hope, the Rev’d Nicholas Porter, Executive Director of Jerusalem Peacebuilders, shares stories of Abram and of Julian of Norwich—along with the stories of the participants of Jerusalem Peacebuilders—inviting us to not hold back—to give ourselves to God—and to expect that God is faithful. The actions of individuals can make a difference, Fr Porter reminds us, when we act in love, responding to God’s love for us. Dare we believe, as Julian did, that God is faithful—that God is all powerful, and that God is all loving, and that God will do everything God says?
