“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?” In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Today is Father’s Day and I remember a father telling me about a phone call with his daughter. She had been accepted into several graduate school programs in different areas of the country. This put her in the dilemma of choosing which one would be the next chapter in her life. She was having trouble making up her mind. So she said, “Dad, what should I do? Give me an answer.” The father thought for a moment. He had a couple of options. He could give her an answer of what he would do had be been in her shoes. Or he could see this as an opportunity to help her grow into a mature adult by coming to her own decision after living this question for awhile.
On Pentecost Sunday, the Bishop blessed and dedicated an extraordinary gift to the Cathedral from Trinity parishioner Charliss Russ. Charliss, who also is head of the Centurion Guild, has had fourteen original processional banners prepared in thankful memory of her parents, Hazel and Pete Russ, and other friends, mentors, and ministries that have been helpful in her life in Christ. Created by Almy with guidance and assistance from Michael McNeely, these new processional banners are all “originals” as they are designed with images from, or associated with, the Cathedral. The banners are 20×32 and mounted on a 7 ft. banner pole, not quite what is considered ‘standard’ size, but easier for our young acolytes to carry. Vergers John Stanley and Michael McNeely are looking for ways to display the banners within the Cathedral when not used in the service processional. Charliss began working on the project early in the 2014 Easter season. She says, “This banner project has been a wonderful journey of reflection and remembrance as I thought about special people on my Christian journey.” Thank you Charliss, for this beautiful gift to the Cathedral.
