Good people of West Parish,
Oh, how marvelous Sunday was! Close to 30 children gathered at the front of the sanctuary! Our voices strong in song and prayer! New folks welcomed, and old friends welcomed back! We were the church! We were the body of Christ. I am so grateful for each one of you!
As we move ahead in this year, we will continue thinking about how to connect with one another more fully. What does it mean to be the body of Christ? What does Christian community look like? What responsibilities do we have to one another, and to those around us? If you have thoughts or ideas, I would love to hear them! Meanwhile, see you on Sunday as we explore the familiar parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin. Might these stories be more challenging than we realize?
See you then!
