Bishop Stephen T. Lane offered his annual address and Convention sermon to the people of the Diocese of Maine on Saturday, October 28, during the 198th Annual Convention of the Diocese of Maine at the Cross Center in Bangor.
In his sermon Bishop Lane had this, in part, to say:
“[We are] to testify to the Good News of God in Christ.
“I love that word testify. It means to stand up and tell the truth. To testify means we have to be among the people. We cannot testify in our closets. We cannot testify in our homes. We have to be in our communities…We have to be voices for the love of God. Followers of the way of Jesus. That’s the work God is inviting us into. It may seem like a lost cause but, my friends, the love of God is never exhausted. It is here. Right here. Right now.”
