Gathering to Strengthen … 27-Jan-2019
From the Desk of Father David
Dear Friends in Christ,
In Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he talked about all of us being a part of the Body of Christ. Yes all of us play an important part in building up Christ’s body here on earth. The danger is that we can say let the people in charge or other people fix it. We all have gifts and when someone uses their gifts everyone benefits.
Therefore, there are two very important gatherings this week to help strengthen the parish. First is a parish wide gathering, This gathering is for the sole purpose of an open dialogue between you and me. After I give an overview of the parish status, we will then open it up for comments, questions and ideas to help the parish. Everyone is invited to come to the Church this Monday, January 28th at 7 pm. Hope to see you there.
The second special gathering is for all the men of the parish. We will be gathering in the rectory this Thursday to discuss how we can become stronger men for God and how living this call will strengthen our families and communities. I have been asked if men of different Christian denominations can come. The answer is a definite yes. The scriptures are very clear “as steel sharpens steel, men sharpen men.” The group will decide on the shape of future gatherings. Come and see this Thursday at 7 pm in the rectory what can happen when you approach God with an open heart.
Holy Spirit come and make us the Body of Christ.
In Christ’s love,
