Lent Madness 2017 is Coming!

By | ,

What is Lent Madness? It’s a fun, engaging way for everyone to learn about the men and women who are included in the Church’s Calendar of Saints, during the season of Lent (this year, beginning Wednesday, March 1). Here’s the format: 32 “saints” are placed into a tournament-like single elimination bracket. Biographical information about each of the saints is shared and people vote for their favorite saints, on the Lent Madness website or using Facebook or Twitter. Things get more interesting in subsequent rounds— we find out a little more about the semifinal and final contenders– and ultimately one saint earns the coveted Golden Halo.

Message from Bishop Hollingsworth

By |

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ, Today’s statement from the Primates’ meeting, while not entirely unexpected, is deeply disappointing to me, as I suspect it may be to many of you. In the same breath that it professes a “unanimous desire to walk together,” it announced a decision “requiring that for a period of three years The Episcopal Church no longer represent [the Anglican Communion] on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and that while participating in the internal bodies of the Anglican Communion, they will not take part in decision…

GCC Op-Ed on Tamir Rice Grand Jury Proceedings

By | ,

The following letter was submitted to Cleveland.com by Greater Cleveland Congregations co-chairs: Rabbi Joshua L. Caruso, Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple; The Very Rev. Tracey Lind, Trinity Cathedral; and Pastor Richard Gibson, Elizabeth Baptist Church. Western religions generally counsel against pure anger. In scripture, God is lifted up as one who is “slow to anger.” Indeed, being slow to anger is aspired to as a virtue for every living being. Yet there are times when anger serves us well – when it is harnessed to confront society’s systemic ills and catalyze change. We are deeply saddened, extremely frustrated, and – yes – angered by the pattern of…

Reflection by the Rev. Jay Sidebotham

By |

  A note from the Rev. Jay Sidebotham, guest preacher at Trinity Cathedral on Dec. 6, 2015.  Several firsts for me this past weekend. I was invited by a friend and colleague, Tracey Lind, to teach and preach at the cathedral in Cleveland, where she ably and artfully serves as Dean. I’ve known of her courageous and creative work for years, in Cleveland and other places, I was pleased and honored to see the place in action for the first time, a vibrant, diverse, inclusive community. In my experience, church isn’t always like that.
