Dear Friends,

I often tell the congregation that I am better at the questions than the answers.  This month I invite you to answer this question: We are a church that...?

Here are some possibilities:

             WE ARE A CHURCH THAT BELONGS TO CHRIST.  THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU HERE.

Wouldn't that be helpful to remember as we consider ways to reach out into our community and the world in the name of Jesus?

WE ARE A CHURCH THAT ROLLS UP ITS SLEEVES AND GETS TO WORK.

How can each one of us be part of ministries that are involved in the needs and challenges of our neighbors?

WE ARE A CHURCH THAT IS A CATALYST, CONVENER AND BRIDGE BUILDER.

How can we participate and encourage worship and ministries in cooperation with people of other faith traditions in this community ?

We are a church that...  What ways can our congregation complete this sentence?

Within our congregation?  Within our community?  Throughout the world?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts and responses.

 

Still in one peace,

Pastor Elaine
