The Rev. James Hazelwood, Bishop of the New England Synod, has prepared a sermon for the Second Sunday of Easter and has made it available for use by congregations and pastors in the synod (click on the image below to access). The Ministry Staff invites you to make the sermon part of your home worship and devotion. Bishop Hazelwood was first elected to the Office of Bishop of the New England Synod Assembly in June 2012 and was installed at a Rite of Installation held at Trinity. He was re-elected to a second six-year term in 2018. We give thanks for Bishop Hazelwood’s ministry and leadership and pray God’s blessing upon him.
