While I find it hard to believe that we are this close to Lent, I also am reminded that in every day of the Church year, we are afforded the opportunity to glorify God in thought, word, and deed. Epiphany is about Christ, who revealed his glory upon the holy mountain. Lent is about centering on and nourishing that Light within our own being to be and spread that Light with our lives.

Our actual ability to glorify and please God in will and deed is rooted in the source of our strength: God. Whenever we rely on God and entrust our lives, present and future, to the One who created us, we come closer to experiencing a certain peace that surpasses human understanding.
In my first two weeks, as your Associate Rector I have witnessed the ways in which St. Peter’s has been a beacon of light and hope in our city. I have learned of your rich history of being a parish of radical welcome and justice for the most vulnerable in our society, and the ways in which our parish in continuing this gospel work. Again, and again I have heard of the ways in which various parishioners are modeling hope in the context of our society’s fear and anxiety.
