So much is stirring at Holy Covenant these days! There are graduations, and weddings, and ordinations to be celebrated. There’s transition on a horizon that’s getting closer and closer – both for our church and for a lot of us as individuals. There’s loss and grief, too; lots of us are hurting in profound ways that defy language. And many – many – of us are doing the real, hard work of loving each other as brothers and sisters in God’s family.
I give thanks for you; I give thanks for this place, this particular out-cropping of the Church that (as we heard in Ephesians this week) is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus as the cornerstone. I don’t know about you but I surely experience the people around here as being joined together and growing into a dwelling-place for God.
A couple of things for your attention:
- Spring Small Groups are ready for you to sign up. Get together for meals, biking, reading through that rich book of Ephesians, for prayer; let your new identity in Christ be shaped by your relationships and practices.
- We will be marking Pastor Kate’s last Sunday with our annual Pentecost Hymn Sing. It’s the birthday of the church (not OUR church – THE church!) and you’re invited to the party. Come at 8:30 to learn how to make pies; come at 10:30 to worship; bring a non-dessert dish and stay for a potluck after church. But before that…cast your vote for what we’ll sing! We’re choosing from among Pastor Kate’s favorites, so we can’t go wrong.
How very good and pleasant it is to be in community with you.
See you Sunday,
