Sermon by Canon Stuart Pike
Luke 13: 10-17
In place of a sermon today I showed the Video, International Justice Camp above. I've been at General Synod being a translator for our Cuban partners, Bishop Griselda Delgado Del Carpio and Dr. Pepe Bringas (both of whom have visited St. Luke's.) After the presentation which they gave (and which I translated) the Justice Camp video was shown and I wanted to share it with St. Luke's. The Gospel lesson is the story of the Good Samaritan, which is Jesus' answer to the Lawyer's question, "Who is my Neighbour?" Being a neighbour isn't about proximity, but about relationship, like the relationship which we share between Canada and Cuba. Please enjoy this video and share it widely.
