Trinity to Light Candles for Orlando Shooting Victims on June 19

By |

A version of this letter from The Very Rev. Tracey Lind was sent to Trinity Cathedral members on June 16. Dear friends, Like most of you, I’m still reeling with grief, sorrow, anger and despair over the mass shooting at Pulse in Orlando. A gay bar — a sanctuary where the LGBTQ community has historically felt safe to dance, sing, make friends, meet potential partners, and enjoy one another’s company without harassment and judgment — was violated in the most unfathomable way. My heart and soul ache for the 50 young men and women who died, the 53 injured, and their loved…

Rev. Kay Rackley: On Prayers for Our Community

By |

Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.  — James…
