An article from the Cathedral Times by Dean Sam Candler
Thank you! I am writing my first thank you note of the Christmas season to you – the glorious Cathedral parish community! Thank you for your presence, your care, your generosity during the month of December and into the Christmas season!
This beautiful community serves and sings, prays and plays, worships and witnesses throughout the year. But we do so even more intensely during the Advent and Christmas seasons. It takes a lot of preparation and work. A lot. But you have witnessed beautifully to the incarnation here. You are the signs that God continues to be real, in the flesh, in this holy place.
My Christmas Eve sermon this year was about lists. “Make a list!” I said, “of the people you are thankful for! Giving lists show us where our soul is.” Well, many of you have given dearly to the worship and witness of the Cathedral Parish of St. Philip. And it shows. This place has soul because of you!
Like Mary, “my soul magnifies the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” Thank you for Christmas at the Cathedral this year
Love to you, and Peace!
