On November 3, Bishop Lane visited with members of St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Windham, to celebrate the initial ingathering of their capital campaign. In his sermon, he had this to say:
The story of Zacchaeus is actually the story of a great blessing, of a man who had done a great evil in his life discovering a new way of life and a new kingdom to live for. What God cares about is not how bad we’ve been, but how good we can be, how we can turn our lives around and align them more and more with our neighbors and with God. God cares about how we care for one another and our neighbors, our recognition that our neighbors are, in fact, “us.” God cares us about how we use the gifts God has given us to care for God’s children. And God lets us try over and over again to get it right.
