Fruit That Will Last: A Sermon by Bishop Sean

Sumo oranges are almost as good as chocolate cake, according to Bishop Sean, but they are not fruit that lasts. Neither are bananas. Fruit that lasts comes from relationships like the ones we are cultivating in our partnership. “We knew we had fruit that was good as it is; that is wonderful just as it is right now,” he said in his sermon for the Sixth Sunday of Easter. “But we decided that we might try to build fruit that will last. And that meant giving up something of ourselves and something of what we wanted for something greater.”
