This week’s offerings of sermon, podcast and reading/reflection, ready for this coming Sunday.
The Sermon Slot
How do we respond to God’s call, when so much is closed down? With the Cathedral beginning to open up again, Dean Stephen Lake shares his reflections on God’s call, on Ordination during lockdown, and his sermon for June 28. Each week we share a sermon and a reading for use the upcoming Sunday.
Families Gospel video
Archdeacon Phil teaches us on the story of the Good Samaritan.
Listen again: Podcast Episode 7
We are releasing a new podcast every fortnight. This week, listen again to last week’s special: Black Lives Matter.
In this episode Bishop Rachel enters into conversation with four Christians who are black, in the Diocese of Gloucester – Rumbi, Ade, Simi and Suki – two adults and two young people, about the impact of Covid-19, the murder of George Floyd and our failures as a Church regarding racial justice.
