Some great affirmations of faith and purpose in a sermon by John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, a few weeks ago for Ascension Day.
Dear friends, I bid you today to take hold of the reality of the Resurrection. The necessity of the birth and death of Jesus Christ. The urgency of the task to be witnesses for Christ. The secret of power given to us by the Holy Spirit.
I like the strong words he chooses. May all who are preparing to preach and hear on this coming Trinity Sunday likewise find the real, necessary, urgent and powerful presence of God.
