Bishop Seage speaks often about striving to be one Church. When the Chapel of the Cross graciously allows me the time to preach and celebrate the eucharist at another church, we are living into that call of being one Church.
Steve Middleton shared an original poem with the Vestry last Wednesday which imagines what passers by might have thought when Margaret Johnstone was originally constructing the Chapel in 1848.
An amazing collection of theologies and poetry, hymns are affirmations, encouragements and even admonitions. We cannot divorce ourselves from current life circumstances when encountering these powerful texts. And, as always, to read is to interpret. For me, a hymn is at its strongest when it speaks to today’s world issues.
