As Bishop McLoughlin reminded us on Wednesday evening, our first year together as a priest and people has not been without surprise. We are living our mission in a context unimaginable even a few short months ago In the midst of a global pandemic and a national moment of reckoning around racism, we are celebrating a relationship that calls us to minister God’s love, mercy, compassion, and justice in a world ever torn by fear, anxiety, hostility, and division.
Bishop Brian Cole reminded us in his sermon to cling ever more, in these days and all the time ahead, to the words of the Letter to the Romans –
“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers."
In our life and ministry together in the High Country, may we embody these ancient words of instruction and wisdom, as we build up one another in the Body of Christ.
As ever, it is a joy and privilege to serve as your Rector.
The Reverend Andrew J. Hege
