Dear Trinity Cathedral

As the COVID numbers continue to decline we see at Trinity steady increases in attendance at worship.  Please know that although the infection rates have declined, they are still of concern.  So we continue to emphasize safety…..masks….social distancing…and of course the online option.  At the same time there is all around us an obvious spiritual hunger for community, for gathering, and fellowship.   So many have lived in isolation for the past two years, zoom fatigue is real, and loneliness is often painful.

So we do want to welcome people back to church…long time members and new people as well…..either online or in person.  Historically this has been challenging for Episcopalians.  A Gallup Poll once said the Episcopalians invite someone to church once every 27.5 years.  We can do better, especially in these challenging times when community is challenged and strained.  So many people feel isolated and would find encouragement and joy at Trinity.  We are a welcoming people, a community where all are honored as children of God, where everyone has a place at the table.

In Sunday’s reading from Mark’s Gospel, Bartimaeus cries out to Jesus, and the crowd tries to quiet him.  To their surprise, Jesus calls out to Bartimaeus.  Someone in the crowd yells out to Bartimaeus “Take Heart” and then the crowd leads Bartimaeus to Jesus.  It is a beautiful and moving model for evangelism and ministry for us in this day and time.  To those who are alone and afraid and isolated due to the troubles of the present time, let us remember the words of a stranger to Bartimaeus.  “Take Heart!” and then gently point them to our community of faith where there is so much life and so much joy.

Peace,

Fr. Jason Leo
