Mystery and Community: Trinity Sunday and Memorial Day – Sermon for May 26, 2013
Fr. Funston's sermon for May 26, 2013, exploring the common themes of Trinity Sunday and Memorial Day is now online: Memorial Day, like Trinity Sunday, is a day whose theme is community, the nation as community, the military services as community, the family as community. Bishop Ware’s description of Trinitarian community as embracing “diversity and unity, human freedom and mutual solidarity” could as easily have been used by the president to describe the community which celebrates Memorial Day; President Obama’s words of courage and devotion, sacrifice and trust, justice and eternal peace could as easily have been used to describe the ...
