Bishop Lane joined the people St. Barnabas’, Rumford, and their neighbors from local churches on Good Friday. In his sermon he had this, in part, to say:
There is nothing we can do that can put us beyond the reach of God’s love. There is nothing we have done or might do that can’t be rehabilitated and transformed. We kneel before the cross guilty as charged and free to try again. Bitterly as we might weep over our sins, we are invited as well to weep in thanksgiving for the love that sets us free.
