... from the 2012 Annual Report
At the beginning of December, the people of St. Paul’s voted to call me as their pastor, a call that began with the new year. As we start this adventure together in faith and hope, join me in thanking God for the wonderful way God works among God’s people. As 2012 ended and the new year turned over, I think we share an eagerness and excitement to see what God has planned for us next. Even now, as we prepare for this annual meeting (January 27, 2013), we are just starting to get to know each other, but God is good, faithful and generous, and because Christ is risen, we can trust God and hope for new life in God’s future.
Resurrection: God’s Power to Change
Known by Our Love
In the year ahead, we will gather as God’s people to worship, pray, learn and serve. I hope this year will also be a year of listening to God, to each other, to our neighbors in the community to hear what God is doing among us and how God is calling us to be a part of Christ’s redeeming work. Gifted as we are, the “more excellent way” that St. Paul writes about is the way of Christ’s unconditional love. In all we do, in all we say, in all we give, I pray we may strive to be a “most excellent community,” a group of people known for the way they love – each other and their community – in Jesus name.
