The Episcopal Church in the City of Euclid

Dear Friends of the Risen Christ,

This month of June is full of signs of the Holy Spirit! At Pentecost, as the disciples of Jesus gathered, still reeling from his Resurrection and Ascension, wondering what might come next, the Holy Spirit came and anointed them with the power and the provocation to proclaim the good news of Christ to the world. The people who heard them were astonished, and they flocked for baptism, because they were hungry for good news, and thirsty for the assurance of the love of God.

We serve in a world that knows that hunger and thirst, and we serve a God whom we know has the power to fill those needs.

On Trinity Sunday, the week after Pentecost, we will celebrate a baptism. Baptism has been described as our first ordination, by water and the Spirit, commissioning us to a life in, with, and for Christ. As we celebrate with Harper and her family, we will remember our own promises, to proclaim by word and deed the good news of God in Christ.

Earlier in June, we celebrate another ordination. On June 1st at Trinity Cathedral, Dan Hinde will become, by the laying on of hands and by the Spirit, a Deacon in Christ’s church, to serve particularly those most in need of good news, those who hunger, those who thirst for the love that Christ brings to the world.

As we celebrate with Dan and with Harper, I invite you to consider your call. How is the Holy Spirit nudging you, anointing you, releasing you to do God’s work in the world? And how can we as a church enable and support your ministry?

May the blessings of the Spirit accompany you through this month and beyond.

You are invited to the Ordination of Deacons at Trinity Cathedral on Saturday, June 1st at 10am. Dan Hinde will serve as our Deacon and preach at Epiphany on Sunday, June 2nd.
