The Lord is Risen!

Welcome to the Cathedral Church of St. George

in Kingston, Ontario, Canad

The Very Rev. Don Davidson

 

Αλλελυια! Χριστός ἀνέστη! Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
     In the waning days of Lent, I had what I can only describe as an Emmaus Road experience.  As a story, It is too long to fit in the restraints of this front page for the Cathedral, but I have written it up completely in my blog, so that you can access it at http://deandondavidson.blogspot.ca.
It is enough to say that I had an experience one day this winter that sent me on my way in all the excitement that Cleopas and his companion had as they walked with Jesus on the way, while I was in a conversation with a homeless man near St. James’ Cathedral in Toronto. 
     This resurrection that we celebrate is not simply a wonderful story from 200 years ago.  It is a present reality that shows us that each of us is more than simply the mortal shell that carries us through each day, and calls on us to encounter Christ in those we meet each day.
     This is the clarion call of the Gospels down through time.  Rejoice!  God lives in us! Go and live differently as a result.  Come and join us as we celebrate that great truth.
