Latest Sermon

Sermons or homilies in The Anglican tradition follow the weekly scriptural readings assigned in the lectionary for Sundays. There are normally four such readings assigned each Sunday: Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament and Gospels. Holy Trinity Anglican Church follows the Revised Common Lectionary. The sermon is meant to be a proclamation of the faith of the Church communicated “diligently and distinctly, that it may be understood by the people.”

John Donne, Holy Sonnet XIV

Batter my heart, three-person’d God; for you
As yet but knock; breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise, and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
Your force, to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurp’d town, to another due,
Labour to admit you, but O, to no end.
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend.
But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betroth’d unto your enemy;
Divorce me, untie, or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.
