July 22, 2015 Pastor’s Ponderings
“There’s a time for everything under the sun.” As we begin our ministry together as congregation and interim pastor, we will move through many of those times…
We will spend time greeting, welcoming, saying “hello,” and eventually learning to say a “good goodbye.” We will spend time sharing our joys over the ministries we have performed as “church” in the past and the gifts we have discovered and nurtured in those former days. We will spend time sharing the grief we discover looking back and remembering the people who are now at an unaccustomed distance from us.
The Shurleys are excited and humbled to be invited into your family. You have welcomed us graciously and warmly and invited us to share and celebrate the faith you have learned to practice well in the name of Christ. We look forward to our time together and hope that God will smile on what we do.
May we all listen for God’s voice and listen to each other as you and your new pastor are lead to each other in time.
No matter where you are in your spiritual journey you are welcome at Trinity. We are a community of faith that explores questions and new ideas as together we grow in love, grace and service as followers of Jesus.
