Bridges Loom Large
Luke 16:19-31*
Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Detroit
The Rt. Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry


What are the bridges that span the fixed chasms of inequity and inequality in our in our state?

I’m thinking of the food pantries in Southfield, Ann Arbor, Mt Clemens and Royal Oak, to name a few. I’m thinking about the blessing boxes outside our congregations in Lansing, Lincoln Park and Wyandotte.

I’m thinking of the lunches at our Cathedral and Crossroads Ministry in Detroit, or breakfasts in Bound Together in Pontiac. The vegetable gardens at St. Michael’s in Lansing, Church of the Messiah, Detroit and St. Paul’s Romeo.

These are just some of our bridges.”
