Greetings to you! May God’s grace and peace follow you through your days!
I want to let you know that I will not be with you the next two weeks. I will be taking a short vacation to visit my daughter in Vermont. The trip was planned before my internship was over to mark the transition between seminary and the real world – plus I haven’t seen her for over a year. Don Holmes will be leading you in worship these two weeks. Greet him warmly!
During the education hour last Sunday, we began some conversations to get to know each other better. Mostly those that were there got to know me a bit better. (I talked more than I intended.). When I return, it will be your turn. I want to know about Grace. Be thinking about what you might want me to know about you:
What brought you to Grace?
What are your memories of the best times at Grace?
What are your memories of the worst times at Grace?
What are your hopes and dreams for Grace?
What are your fears for Grace?
Anything else you want to tell me – these questions are just to get you started!
I’m looking forward to my vacation, but also to returning to you in two weeks. In the meantime, may God be with you!
