A Sermon for the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost — July 17, 2016

A Sermon for the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost by the Very Rev. Tracey Lind. 

Hanging out with Martha and Mary on the Eve of the Republican Convention
The Very Rev. Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland
July 17, 2016

Proper 11C: Genesis 18.1-10a; Colossians 1.15-28; Luke 10.38-42

Welcome one and all to Trinity Cathedral on this fine summer morning!

How appropriate that we hear this morning the story of Martha and Mary.  For the past several months, weeks and days, we’ve have had front row seats to the Martha show, broadcast live from downtown Cleveland.   I’m not talking about Martha Stewart, but rather, her namesake Martha of Bethany.

Here in Cleveland, Martha has been busy getting ready to welcome the world to our fine city.  We’re throwing parties for basketball and baseball teams, rock ‘n roll stars and their fans; Republicans, Democrats and protesters of differing perspectives; and yes, all of the media that accompanies all the action.

Remembering Orlando — June 19, 2016

A response to the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. This Sermon was delivered by the Very Rev. Tracey Lind on June 12, 2016. 

“Remembering Orlando”
The Very Rev. Tracey Lind
Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland
Sunday, June 19, 2016
Proper 7C
1 Kings 19:1-15 – Luke 8:26-39

One year ago this week, we grieved the loss of nine innocent lives gunned down as they gathered for bible study at Mother Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  From this pulpit, I acknowledged that this atrocity – an act of terror and violence – while carried out by one man, was the result of racism in America: a demon we created and a social system in which we are complicit.

Today, we grieve the loss of 49 more innocent lives and the injury of 53 others who were gunned down as they gathered to celebrate life at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  Once again, this act, though carried out by one deranged, angry and fearful man, is the direct result of homophobia – a demon we created and a bias we still tolerate.

We have grieved the loss of lives due to mass shootings too many times in recent years.  According to the Daily Beast, “Since the Pulse nightclub mass shooting early [last] Sunday, at least 125 people have died in shootings and 269 were injured by guns.  Five of those incidents were mass shootings, according to data from the Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit tracking America’s gun violence.” We are witnessing an escalating crisis of gun violence in America exacerbated by the tremendous power of the gun lobby in our nation.  [Read more…]
