On Saturday I presided at a memorial service for Charlie Blaine, a long time member of Trinity, Buffalo and a former chancellor of the diocese. In the afternoon I attended an 80th birthday celebration honoring the Rev. Bill Wipfler at St. Matthias’ in East Aurora.
I made a visitation to Good Shepherd, Buffalo Sunday morning where I received two new people into the Episcopal church and celebrated the reaffirmation of one Episcopalian. Next I celebrated a 1789 Eucharist at St. Philip’s, Buffalo for their 150th anniversary.
Finally, seeking a restful end to the day, I decided to attend Trinity@7 which is a meditative service offered every Sunday evening at Trinity, Buffalo.
Here is a brief video clip of the remarks I made at the DeVeaux Scholarship reception. The New York Times article I refer to in my remarks can be read here.
