The Rev. Sue Eaves was born in England. After a career in education with a special interest in the under served, she emigrated to the United States in 1981. Ordained in 1991, she has served a number of Episcopal churches in Richmond, Virginia, and is currently serving as Interim Rector at the historic St. Paul’s. Her sermon for the Second Sunday of Advent looks at the text from Isaiah 40:1-11 and considers the question of whether the American church is actually “in exile.” Sue says no, and tells us why not.
