The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
August 25, 2019

In this homily for the 11th Sunday after Pentecost the Rector welcomes the 10th class of Saint Hildans to the parish and invites us all to think about how keeping Sabbath and doing good works is a way to keep God first—to reveal God’s love throughout all the world—God’s love for every last person, every last corner of the world, every last bit of Creation. All is beloved of God. Do our lives reflect this truth? Do our actions reflect this reality? Together let us proclaim the love of God in all that we do and say, with our lives, with our very selves.
