Jake Cunliffe, a seminarian at Yale Divinity School and active member of Trinity, Columbus, was named the winner of a sermon/essay contest sponsored by the Ohio Council of Churches. As part of their 100th anniversary celebration, the Council invited clergy and laity to submit sermons or essays that show appreciation for past and present manifestations of the ecumenical movement, while offering a sense of God’s vision for future expressions of Christian Unity that reveal Christ’s love and justice ethic in our increasingly unjust and fragmented world. As the winner, Cunliffe was invited to present his sermon during morning worship at the OCC’s anniversary event on September 6.
