“The saints we celebrate today are lamps along the way”

[The Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs, November 4, 2012]  “The saints we celebrate today are lamps along the way – the lights of every generation who let us see that living presence in our midst,” Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached at Waikato Cathedral Church of St. Peter, Hamilton, New Zealand on Sunday, November 4. “You’ve seen them, you know them, whether they are searchlights like Mother Teresa and Desmond Tutu, or those we think of as lesser lights – the neighbor who feeds our cat when we’re out of town, or the stranger who gives direction to a wandering tourist, or the folks in New Jersey who are stringing extension cords and power strips out to the sidewalk so the powerless can charge their cell phones.”

Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori is attending the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meeting in New Zealand.
