Message from the Rector
Many years ago, I heard a truth about the Christian faith that has stuck with me—a truth that grounds what I believe at the foundation of who I am and how all of God’s people should act: “You can’t be a Christian in isolation. Our Triune God serves as a model of how we are to operate. God is not isolated. God is a Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer; whatever! The key is that they are constantly working together—influencing each other—and are in relationship with each other.”
Historically, the Sunday after Pentecost is Trinity Sunday. If I were preaching this Sunday I would preach about the importance of relationship. Our God, in who our God actually is, is relationship…our God is love. Foundationally, our God is our example of who we should be foundationally—a people centered and focused on relationship.
But, I’m not preaching this Sunday. In hopes to promote our fundamental call to relationship and need for one another, we are lifting up the younger ones among us in our community for our All Saints Parish Youth Sunday. This Sunday, our lectors, prayer leaders, acolytes, and preacher will be represented by our youth! Some highlights in service:
- Aeowyn Fields will be preaching at both the 8am and 10:30am services
- At the 10:30am service, Voices In Praise youth choir will be singing throughout the service
- Our graduates will be recognized
My hope is that this Youth Sunday kicks off a renewed sense of how important our youth are in this community—reigniting a relationship we are called to... a call to foster and grow in order for us to live out our call as true Christians. I look forward to seeing you all this Sunday.
