It was appropriate that the Rev. Canon “Chip” Stokes chose the story of the Good Samaritan for his farewell sermon.
St. Paul’s Episcopal embraced poor Haitian immigrants living around the church during Stokes’ ministry. Christ told the parable of the Good Samaritan so Christians will be compassionate to their neighbors.
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” Stokes reminded his congregation in his final sermon on July 14 before leaving to become the bishop of New Jersey. Stokes has been at St. Paul’s since January 1999.
