Good people of West Parish,

For many of us, this has been a week of shock and grief. For some of us, we are also managing our own challenges. For some of us, our life goes on routinely.

What continues to amaze me, is how our community is bound together by something greater than any worldly definitions of class, education, background or status. We are truly brothers and sisters, on a sacred journey together.

Whether we've been at West Parish Church for 50 years or just a few months, we are part of this ever-changing circle of relationships and care. There is truly no other place in our lives that can offer this – thanks be to God for the church, and for all of you!

May God's blessings and peace be with you all
