Ray Suarez talks $ on Wall Street

Back in July, PBS’s Newshour correspondent Ray Suarez offered a sermon at the Episcopal Church’s General Convention and recently he was the guest preacher at Trinity Wall Street’s stewardship campaign, urging the congregation to practice “sacrificial giving.”

[Trinity Wall Street] Trinity Wall Street’s annual stewardship campaign recently got some help from Ray Suarez, senior correspondent for the Newshour with Jim Lehrer. Suarez was the guest preacher at the downtown Manhattan church on Oct. 25, and spoke at the parish’s campaign kick-off following the service.

An active Episcopalian, Suarez noted that, while Jesus was not afraid to talk about our relationship to money, Episcopalians notoriously are. “We do it reluctantly, apologetically, politely,” Suarez said.

“That arm’s length relationship to money … hasn’t been effective enough to create in us a spirit of sacrificial giving,” he continued. “Do we look like a people that says, not as a boast but as joyous reassurance, ‘The Lord has done great things for us?'”

Video of Ray Suarez’s sermon can be found HERE , at Trinity Wall Street’s website and it is well-worth a few minutes.
