On the occasion of the the Celebration of New Ministry Service, held on November 27th, The Ven. Richard Salt (Diocesan Director of Ministry & Mission) delivered a compelling sermon entitled “New Beginnings”.
In today’s Sermon, we examine the interrogation of Christ by Pilate in which Pilate is caught in the situation of knowing the innocence of Christ, but compelled to yield to the crowd and Jewish authorities in the condemnation of Christ to the crucifixion.
All of us, at one time or another, experience anger in our lives – both in ourselves and from others. In today’s Sermon, we revisit the importance of reconciliation and forgiveness as the only true recourse that is righteous before God.
In today’s Sermon, we pause to reflect on the triumph of humanity – even in the midst of war. We recall stories and lessons of the past that point us in the direction of God’s purpose for us all. A purpose that includes remembrance, reverence of duty and of the supremacy of love as an all-conquering attribute of the human heart.
