“I believe to the core of my being that if you look for the light, you will see the light.” On Sunday, the Rev.

“The 23rd Psalm bears witness to the way the heart of Christ thirsts for every soul as if it were the only soul ever created.” God’s love is not passive. God actively pursues us and, as the Rev. Canon Dana Corsello says, “God always takes the initiative with us.”

May 1, 2022: Sermon by the Rev. Patrick Keyser
“God finds us and is revealed to us in the ordinary of our lives – in our work, in our struggles, indeed in our eating.” Yes, we see and feel God’s presence when we gather for worship on Sunday. However, as the Rev. Patrick Keyser reminds us, God is made known to us in all aspects of our lives. #NationalCathedral #SundaySermon

"As you drink from the cup of salvation tonight, and on Holy Saturday and Easter, know that the cup of salvation is filled with God’s unconditional love for you.

March 27, 2022: Sermon by the Very Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith
“Open your heart to the God who wishes to give you much more than God demands from you.” How do you view God? What is God’s personality? Does your understanding of God judge you or love you? As we move into the last few weeks of Lent, Dean Randy Hollerith asks us to consider imagining a loving and forgiving God, and to carry that love to others in our lives.

March 20, 2022: Sermon by the Rev. Canon Rosemarie Logan Duncan
“God wants us to do exactly what Jesus did with us, and our responsibility as followers of Jesus is to tend to others with the same compassion and intent.” Repentance is not an expression of regret. It’s not a simple “I’m sorry” or a promise to do better. The Rev. Canon Rose Duncan tells us that true repentance is a reorientation and change of heart.

February 6, 2022: Sermon by the Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin, Sr.
"What are we becoming? We are asking this question not only of ourselves, but also of our families, our communities, our nation, and - dare I say - the world." As the Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin, Sr. reminds us, something powerful happens when we invite Jesus to occupy the center of our lives. Like Simon (later, the apostle Peter) and the fishermen at Gennesaret, we are called to follow Jesus from shallow waters into the deep and have faith that we, too, can become all that we were created to be.

"The question is, can we accept God’s love for us, and thereby in turn, love ourselves?" Being broken and being loved are not mutually exclusive. As Dean Hollerith reminds us, the Bible is filled with stories of love for the broken, the flawed, and the sick. #NationalCathedral #SundaySermon
