The Day of Pentecost Sermon - The Rt. Rev. Andrew ML Dietsche: To Bring Peace, We Must Strive for Justice

May 31, 2020

On this Holy Feast of Pentecost, the Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche, Bishop of New York, speaks to the ways we as people of Christ should strive for justice amidst the dual crises of white supremacy and COVID-19. In his letter read by the Rev. Phillip Jackson, Dietsche says, “we start by insisting again that Black Lives Matter, and must matter, to every person of faith.”

In his pre-recorded sermon, Dietsche also shares gratitude for the Trinity community’s swift action in joining him to create the Diocese of New York Emergency Grants Program, helping support parishes weather the chaos of the coronavirus pandemic.

Watch the sermon. The readings are Acts 2:1–21; Psalm 104:25–35, 37; 1 Corinthians 12:3b–13; and John 20:19–23.
