Worship. Serve. Grow.

Sermons by The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple

Bishop’s Visit 2018

The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple visits St. Paul’s and reflects on spiritual growth (Mark 4:26-34): “If you’re a good farmer, you don’t just think about the harvest this summer, you think about what you’re doing to get ready for the next season, and the next, and all the seasons to come.”

Easter Day 2017

On Easter Day, the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple reflects on the “scandalous” news of Christ’s death and resurrection (John 20:1-18): “The scandal is that, as much as we human beings make a mess of things, the invitation to be made new is issued anew today in this day of resurrection. The tomb, the emptiness, is actually God’s womb that will miraculously bring forth new life.” (The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple is Bishop Diocesan Pro Tempore and VI Bishop Suffragan of North Carolina.)
