November 10, 2012 - Trinity Episcopal Church, Geneva, NY
All of creation from generation to generation is resplendent with this cry of regeneration and growth! Our Lord Jesus Christ kept promising and practicing the gift of life abundant! The Holy Spirit is that one last hope for human kind through whom we know that God has not given up on this, our island home. Every crying baby, every new dream, every new day gives us yet another reason to believe that we are meant to grow in every way, all the time, now and through eternity.
