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. 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.
