It is a joy and a privilege to be invited into God’s family - but the irony of it is that God loved the whole world so much that God invites that whole world into the family. In some ways, we are all God’s children already. The Earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it. So we are here, God’s children working together with God to make sure all God’s children know their Father’s love..
This month has been quite a busy one - whether it was our business meeting, or jumping through hoops with Ed Mackel to try and get him in a place where he can flourish, or finishing up our last few soup suppers, or visiting people in the hospital - there is always a place where God is moving.
It was great to be at our most recent Conference meeting on March 5th. We were able to begin to create a vision for what our conference will begin to look like in the midst of so much transition. It gives us opportunities to be part of conference events like last weekend’s Junior High Retreat - where young people are able to join with others and share their experiences of church and God together.
I am truly looking forward to our first annual church retreat - I hope this gives us a place to start dreaming about the future of Stahl and what we are up to next.
It is a joy to be a part of this congregation in all these ways that God is using us to write the Story.
Let us be part of God’s unfolding Story…
