“What kind of followers are we when we can claim Jesus as our savior, but don't show up when those who are suffering are in need?”
It’s easy to run or look away when we see others who are sick or face economic difficulties. As Canon Leonard Hamlin preached, our faith should help us to see what we don’t want to see.

"How do we get back to remembering that that’s who Jesus called us to be?"
The answer to this question Canon Jan Naylor Cope asked us yesterday may not be simple, but it is clear. In order to be the person Jesus calls us to be, we need to serve others.

“God’s care for God’s children is not based on their performance review.”
We often fall short of what God expects of us. That’s okay because, as Dean Randy Hollerith reminds us, we will never be able to prove our love to God. God still love us, no matter what.

How often on our faith journey do we distracted, discouraged, or fearful? Canon Rose Duncan reminds us that these journeys are never simple paths and there are always going to be challenges, but we must move beyond that fear in the service of building God’s kingdom.

“Yes, we are a people divided to a degree we have not seen in a long, long time, but it need not be so. We have witnessed a better way. We have seen what we can do when we stand together.”
As we reflect on what we have learned in the twenty years since the 9/11 attacks, Dean Randy Hollerith reminded us on Sunday that we are strongest when we put love into action.

“There's no finite limit, truly, to Jesus’ compassion and grace. Neither should there be on ours.”
In Sunday’s gospel reading, we get a glimpse of Jesus’s not-so-pretty humanness when he insults a woman who asked for healing. This story may be difficult to hear, but Canon Jan Cope tells us that this interaction helped to broaden the scope of Jesus’s ministry.
